Settings->Appearance->Video Mode Settings - and disable 'Separate
video modes for GUI and TV playback'

and then just try running mythfrontend using the 2 different display modes.

I'll post something when I've had a chance to test. Otherwise dig in
videoout_xv and videoout_vdpau for ResizeForVideo and try adding an
extra display_res->SwitchToVideo call and maybe some pauses and see if
it helps (though I could be entirely off base).
