I have an Echostar hds 600rs
The normal slingplayer plug-in allows you to pause the picture, but two important things happen:
In the pop-up player, the "pause" feature is pausing the source (in this case the echostar STB) and thus the 2 benefits listed above do not occur.
The 1 benefit of the pop-up player not in the main player in fullscreen is the use of the virtual remote, so you cannot change or control anything in fullscreen.
Have I understood all this correctly?
Can anything be done to make the 2 players more complete?
