    Trivial bug but interesting.

    Steps to reproduce:

    1) Watch live tv
    2) Hit search
    3) hit guide

    Mouse cursor will show up in top left hand corner. I wonder if the white pixel problem other people have seen in the top left hand corner is actually a poorly hidden mouse cursor.

    Dish 500/300 DP34.

    That's pretty funny - confirmed on my 921.

    My 921 has it also.

    FYI, did a long Bug report with an very smart advanced tech last night, listing all the little bugs. I feel the more 921 owners that call in and report specific problems the sooner they will become a priority.

    Advanced tech said I was the first that had mentioned the mouse cursor (not sure if meant the first he had heard of it, or in general). He found it interesting and was going to check it out on a 921 there when we got off the phone.

    He also told me the "white dot" issue will be fixed in L1.44.

    Try connecting a USB mouse and see if you can move it. hehe

    I don't believe that will do anything, cyclone. Have tried connecting a mouse or keyboard to your 921? Let us know what happens when you do.

    Couldn't resist trying and as I expected plugging in a mouse had no effect on the cursor.

    Try rebooting the 921 with the mouse plugged in then get the cursor to show.

    Jerry, I don't have a 921, and my 6000 doesn't have a USB port. he.

    Mike, I don't think that will work since the USB is hot swapable, it should work anytime if its going to work at all. But hey, its worth a shot.
