Jup, Xinerama is still a problem, as there are only a few who
really understand it (manly only the developers themself).
There is still no good documentation available (or does anyone
know such ?)

Why dont you use (x)mga ? This will place it for sure on the G400
(maye you have to move the window onto the second screen)

I read but dont think it can work like this, though didnt test it.
As coincidence i wrote a patch myself an hour ago, that places the
window always on the first screen (see mplayer-devel).
It shouldnt be a lot of work to adjust it to place the window
on an aribtary screen, but i dont know if it's possible to
run Xv on the second screen... dont have the HW to check.
