Some apps that run on my Android STB require mouse control. The Android remote has a mouse function that works well, but the cursor is sometimes hard to see. Are there any high-vis cursors available for Android, or is there any other way to fix this? I can't find any settings on my device.

Developer options not an option on my device, unless it is hidden somewhere.

Somewhere below settings > about, there is a build number. Tap that build number seven times to enable developer options menu. Apologies I had forgotten that 'secret'.

Nice idea but it doesn't really help. The grid lines only appear after clicking and I need a better view of the cursor before clicking. I'm glad to know the developer options trick, though. I hadn't encountered that before. Thanks for the tips!

Go into settings. Search for "Accessibility". Turn on large mouse pointer. Works on my tablet.
