I *DO* have that set. But it only works if I open up the (minimized) main safari window and click on http://watch.slingbox.com again. And when I do that, a whole new popup window opens up, meaning I still have to close the old popup window (the one with 404 tomcat error).
I used to not have to keep the main window open and the popup window would immediately start up when I reopened safari. I'm sure there are better features, but from a usability perspective, it's a step backwards.

Sure. Mac Pro running OS X 10.8.2 and Safari 6.0.1.
1) Open Safari
2) browse to http://watch.slingbox.com (which redirects to newwatch.slingbox.com)
3) if you don't have "open popup player at login" selected, click the button to open the popup player.
4) minimize (or close) the main Safari window (click the yellow dot or the red dot).
5) close Safari by pressing Cmd-Q or selecting Quit from the Safari menu
6) open Safari again
You get the old popup player with the messages
HTTP Status 404 -
type Status report
description The requested resource () is not available.
If you don't minimize or close the main window before closing Safari, when you reopen, you will get a second popup window showing the slingbox app, but the original popup window with the same 404 error is there too (underneath for me). But that second popup window only seems to occur if the main window is visible when Safari is opened.
It does appear that I was wrong about the tivo remote control requiring the main window be open. I am able to open the tivo remote from the popup window after closing the main browser window.
