Nice idea on the alt-tab assignment. Doing this now.

This happens more and more, after I turn on TV and receiver in order to watch (the NUC stays on 24/7).

 

I alt-tab using a button on the remote until the cursor goes away, sometimes a single press is sufficient, sometimes 2-3.

 

ET is the only app running so not sure why something is going on with the focus. It appears to me that the cursor is still showing since ET doesn't know/think it's in focus.

I started having this problem too.  Didn't make any changes to my system, so not sure why it started happening.  Have to use the alt-tab method to get it to go away.

Same here, it happens to me 90% of the time I open Theatre, even after a fresh reboot.

 

Nothing changed with my Win7.

 

I just alt-tab with the remote 2-3 times until the cursor goes away. This only works in the opening window when I launch Theatre, if I try that during playback it doesn't work and I have to either move the cursor or re-launch Theatre.

 

This happens regardless if Theatre is the only app running or not.

You're saying it happens during playback? Something must be stealing focus then as I've never seen that happen before.

Figured I'd chime in on this, as I am having similar issue with the cursor.  I use Harmony to control ET and my cursor never hides at all.  Doesn't matter if I'm going thru the menu or watching media, it's always there.  My only solution is to move cursor to the right of the screen to mostly hide it. 

 

Any ideas why?  Not really a big issue, but when I turn projector, receiver, etc completely off and back on again, cursor defaults to center again and have to move it.

@infinitereality, did you try pressing the button on the remote 2-3 times (with 1 second delay between presses)? for me pressing it 2-3 times makes the cursor go away without using a mouse or keyboard with a touch-pad.

Try putting this in your mpv.conf

I don't think it relates to mpv since the cursor appears on-screen while navigating Theatre and will not go away. Sometimes alt-tab can make it go away (1-3 times), sometimes a mouse move has to take place for it to hide.

I'll give the alt-tab a shot and see if that solves it.  If so I'll add it to the onscreen command on the Harmony and be set! 

 

If not, I'll add that line to the mpv.conf and see if that helps

 

Thanks!!

But it may help to keep focus. Can't hurt to try it.

Sure, will try. Any specific ontop-level setting?

No helpie, here's the video I promised I'll make.

 

https://1drv.ms/u/s!...at0tH1sI1zVJsMw

 

I didn't talk cause everyone is still asleep. Toward the end, I show how I press my alt-tab remote button twice and the cursor finally goes away.

 

This is the setting I added to mpv.conf:

ontop
no-window-dragging

Can you check that Theater isn't overriding it? If you window the app, and launch another app, does Theater stay on top?

I'll try later, the little one is watching a movie.

 

The cursor issue doesn't happen 100% of the time, sometimes when I launch Theatre the cursor auto-hide on its own.

Ok, I set Theatre to window mode (Windows taskbar is showing), then open notepad via start menu, notepad is in focus showing on top of Theatre.

 

Same with Windows explorer.

 

I removed the settings from the conf file and it behaves the same.

 

If I set Theatre to full screen (Windows taskbar is not showing) then any app that I open is placed behind Theatre and I can't bring the app into the view, it always stays behind Theatre.

So, theater has it's own rule for that. I thought that might be the case.

I tried the tab-alt thing and it works! Once I did it, watched some media without issues. Closed out ET and reloaded and cursoy came back but went away without like it should without using any keys.

I haven't turned everything off with Harmony off button yet, but will try that tomorrow.
