I have a sling adapter, using Firefox 5/ Vista with 2 monitors. If I put the streamed content full screen on one of the monitors, my cursor/arrow will disappear in about 5 seconds on the main monitor screen. I have to move the mouse over to the streamed screen and the cursor shows up again.
Completely reproducible . I fired up IE and the behavior does not occur. Before I 'bother' tech support, can anyone with a similar set up see if they can reproduce this problem?
Dishing it up since 4-4-1997
vip722K hooked up to a bunch of stuff. Like a bigger TV.

Soon to be on Dish network, explained by a BBC spokesman

FYI, don't bother with tech support, they won't know. Happens on DRA (Dish Remote Access) as well as DishOnline (since it uses the same plugin).

The best they will do is take a trouble report and not to be the negative neddy but cold day in hell for when they'd address it.

I suspect its linked to hardware acceleration in Adobe Flash, but don't know for sure.
