    What did Sling change in the last month to cause the remote to disappear unless the cursor is kept moving?

      In the last month or so Sling changed something to their system where the remote will appear when the cursor is moved (like in the past), but now I have to keep moving the cursor or the remote disappears after 5 seconds.  This is a pain when forwarding, rewinding or just reading movie descriptions.  Also, before I was able to double click on the screen when it was in full screen mode and it would move out of full screen mode so I could access controls.  Now I have to hit the exit button - again a pain as I have the computer next to the tv and use a wireless mouse.

      Today, I am having a problem where the remote will not appear at all, and I have had to control alt delete to get out of full screen mode, and then log in again.

      I don't know if the engineers at Sling think these are improvements, but they aren't for me.

      Anyone else having these problems?
