If you can watch video on both fine, then I guess you don't have a
problem. As an example from the gentoo-wiki article:

"Hardware that can only be used on one display at a time (eg: video
overlays, hardware accelerated RGB overlays), and which consequently
cannot be used at all when in TwinView, can be exposed on the first X
screen when each display is a separate X screen."

Xv scaling acceleration can typically only be used on a single screen at once.
