    Summary: Some users who have a dual monitor system, use the second monitor works as a photo frame. Cursor autohide only works for MP screen.

    Area: Autohide Feature for Dual Monitor System


    Some users who have a dual monitor system, use the second monitor works as a photo frame. Cursor autohide works only on top of the MediaPortal GUI, and the cursor never autohides when it is within another monitor window. If we extend the autohide feature to include all the monitors in it's scope, the cursor will not obscure the slide show on the second monitor even if the cursor is left in that screen. This will allow not to worry about current location of the cursor.

    This will not also not hurt the existing behavior as the cursor always reappears when the mouse moves.

    Thank you.
