Hi,

I am launching Hulu desktop from the applications menu in Plex. When Hulu Desktop launches the Finder is on top and you have to select Hulu with a mouse to have it active to use with a remote.

Has anyone else seen this issue.

Thanks,

Aaron

I am using HuluDesktop outside plex but I had the similar problem. I had to do a mouse click on the Hulu app before the remote would work.

The way I solved it is by having a 3 steps custom action:
Activate Hulu Desktop Behavior
Delay 10s (allow hulu to start)
Applescript: do shell script ("/usr/sbin/click -x 1285 -y 5")

My hulu runs on the second screen so i need to add 1280 (the resolution of my first screen - on the left of the Hulu screen) on the horizontal, but for most people "-x 5 -y 5" would work just fine. If the Hulu app starts slower than 10 sec you can either increase the number or just press the key one more time once Hulu is up

"click" is a tiny utility that simulates a mouse click found at http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=2008051406323031
