I'm not sure if I understand what you want to do, but maybe try the following:
env SESSION_MANAGER= xinit gmplayer -geometry 800x600 -- :1 -screen screen_tv
(Anyways I wonder why xinit would try to start another instance of the session
Maybe better use the following one:
env DISPLAY=:1 gmplayer -geometry 800x600
