Default dual screen issue with new nvidia drivers

Firstly I am fairly sure this is not a bug with bsplayer, but would like to rule it out and confirm the issue I am seeing.

This behaviour is not present on Nvidia drivers 275.33 but is present on newer drivers, eg: 280.19, 285.78 and 290.36.

I am aware at times that they have broken video playback with certain applications but my personal issue with those newer drivers is as follows:

Windows 7 x64
Bsplayer settings:
Compatibility: Disable visual themes, disable desktop composition, using internal render (hence the compatibility options).

When I have just display #1 enabled, video playback is fine. When I extend my desktop onto the second display:

Playback on display #2 is fine, however now display #1 shows a blackscreen with no video, audio is fine in all cases.

As I say, this issue is not present in 275.33. It is also not present with for example EVR renderer, however for the record I get horrible vsync tearing or some curious stutter every few seconds on one screen using other renderers.

Thanks for any info.
