    Wow!!!....can it be that I'm the only one experiencing this problem?
    I think that you are the only person in the entire world who uses a mouse to control MP :eek:. However...

    Having now tried this on my production system (MP 1.24F on Windows 7), I too cannot get the top bar to appear. By "top bar", I mean the horizontal bar that contains the traditional VCR player controls (play, pause, stop, forward, rewind, record, possibly a few others). There is a skin file called "TopBar.xml" that contains the definitions for these controls.

    I tested "DefaultWideHD", with both my usual "Centarea HID" active for the remote control, and with that disabled and a standard MCE remote enabled instead (I also exited from the "Centarea HID" AutoHotKey script, just in case that was interfering with the mouse signals). I also enabled the "Show enhanced mouse controls" setting (in "GUI Controls" in "MP Config"). None of these different combinations could persuade the top bar to appear. :(

    The only thing that did appear was the info OSD, which appeared when I moved the mouse pointer towards the bottom edge of the screen (when playing live TV).

    I use the standard EVR (not Madvr), so I think that there is definitely a problem... :(

    Dithering can be important for GUI so maybe Topbar too :)

    Problem solved (well, at least for me :D).

    You need to enable the TopBar Plugin in "MP Config":

    After I did this, the top bar appears in live TV when the mouse pointer is moved towards the top of the screen. Hopefully this solves the problem for @tonewheelkev too. :)

    Just an aside the plugin was enabled by default for me and the topbar has always appeared with mouse movement but I never tended to use it even on my desktop, with mouse as most of the buttons don't work!:eek: The playback controls seem OK but volume, close and shutdown are all only functional for me when playing a video, not from TV or the Home GUI, is that intentional? At least now I know how to disable it.:)

    Thanks for this Sebastiii.......but having real problems now with MadVR...!
    When I open 'edit settings' from the tray, a window opens:)....but when I click in that window...it disappears (and now MadVR also gone from tray:( )
    So...I've gone back to EVR
