    Black screen Slingplayer for Chrome 42?

      Launched Slingplayer today and the plugin wanted to update. Now after updating I get a popup window called Slingplayer for Chrome with a black screen. No controls or ability to watch live. The IE version of Slingplayer works fine. Adblock is installed but doesn't run on the slingbox.com domain, and the problem is there even when paused.

       

      Any ideas?

          Problem solved - posting the answer so those people searching later can find.

           

          The problem is with ATI switchable graphics. Launch the Slingplayer and then go into switchable graphics and change the settings for the Chrome SlingPlayer application to "Power Saving." This will force the player to use Intel graphics instead and in most cases the Intel graphics adapter is powerful enough to handle the load.
