Default Black window on XV output

Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic
Video: nVidia GF 9600GT 512Mb
I tried the drivers 185.18.36 and 190.42 which were installed via "Hardware drivers" (jockey-gtk)
I have problem with XV output -- black window instead of picture.
Composite and VDPAU works fine, but XV doesn't. This is not mediaplayer problem, because I've tried players with different engines -- xine, mplayer, gstreamer.
How to fix this?

Have you tried switching to another tty and then back again? That sometimes fixes a problem like yours that I used to get. Ctrl-Alt-F3, Ctrl-Alt-F7.

Try resetting the Xv color adjustments; run nivida-settings, go to the "X Server XVideo Settings" page, and try "Reset to HW defaults", or manually adjusting the sliders.
