Directv and PC problem

Last Modified: 2013-12-09
Hello experts,
I recently hooked up my DIRECTV to my computer using a very long Ethernet cable.
However if some of you have DIRECTV you will see a progress bar as you fast forward through recorded programs.

Sometimes this annoying bar will freeze on the screen usually when you use the pause button and you have to press the exit buttonTV remote to clear it otherwise it will disappear after a few seconds.

As I'm watching Tennis on my PC via the Ethernet cable from my TV I have ran into the exact same issue accept the keyboard nothing that will work like the exit button on the remote.
I have tried using a combination of several hot key  but nothing works. The
Esc key  will only take you back to the main menu.

Does anyone have an answer to this?
