You can try overlay mode 2. sometimes it works sometimes it don't.
I have the same problem and i made some flames about it. But nobody cares.
You can try and rgb overlays, but they make more cpu usage.

I have the same problem: Neither overlay mode 1 nor mode 2 works. Only RGB mode works.
In mode 1 it only shows a black screen and in mode 2 it says "overlay failed".
Till yesterday everything worked fine.
I had the message "overlay failed" sometimes before (when I used several players at the same time) but then it worked anyway. Probably it changed automatically to RGB mode or something.
I don't know what happened, that overlay does not work anymore now.
Really strange!

On this post Mike has found that, despite the drawbacks, forcing resolution with BSPlay could help to use mode 1.
