Sounds like DGA doesn't work correctly for you/with your VGA card. 

When the menu is pulled down and obscures what 'fxtv' "knows" should be 
the screen area, DGA is switched off (IIRC, shared memory is used 

Either fix whatever is wrong with DGA, or try the command-line option 
that forces fxtv not to use DGA, even if it is detected (sorry, don't 
remember what it is).

Roger posted a DGA test program a long time ago to assist him when 
reporting DGA-related problems.
