    Custom remote skin keeps going away


      I installed Alan Richey's (alanrichey42) custom remote for xbox 360 and with his help, I changed the custom remote skin.  I have since moved and am trying to install this skin on a couple of new computers...and it works from time to time.


      I have put the Custom Remote.spr file in three locations:

      C:\Users\<user folder>\AppData\LocalLow\Sling Media\WebSlingPlayer\Remote

      C:\Users\<user folder>\AppData\Roaming\Sling Media\WebSlingPlayer\Remote

      C:\ProgramData\Sling Media\SlingPlayer\2.0\Remote


      After some poking and proding, I got the custom remote skin to show up in webslingplayer and the stand alone player.  Though the stand alone player isn't working well...don't ask.


      Now, it has reverted back to the default remote even though I haven't made any changes to the slingplayer folders or contents.


      Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong or how to get the custom remote to stick?

          I find this occasionally when I have run test remotes through my Slingbox.   You have to go to the standalone Slingplayer use the Connect > Remote keys to re-select the required 'skin'.   In theory this should 'stick' when you use WebSlingPlayer but I think everyone knows my opnion of that system
