    I hate to say it... but I don't understand the question.

    What virtual remote are you talking about?

    The virtual remote on the slingplayer, The only thing I can do with it is control the volume. Can't change channels or control the DVR.

    I think your right i think it's a combination explorer and and active x control. It's frustrating that Dish could not let Slingbox do their own thing and run the program their own way. I have a seperate Slingpro with another receiver and never had a problem.

    I have only tried with MAC OSX Safari and Firefox... and PC Windows XP Firefox and IE8.

    Your issues could well be 64-bit related. I do not know the mechanism of their plug-in and if it actually works in a 64-bit browser.

    I know on the Mac, once Safari went 64-bit... I'm pretty sure I remember being told I have to run it in 32-bit mode... and I don't recall ever being told that had been addressed.

    You might want to try launching IE8 in 32-bit mode and see if that works better.
