Windows 7: Remote desktop + remote audio

08 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 OEM --> RTM clean install
Solved: Remote desktop + remote audio

I have 2 laptops, both connected cable+wifi to a 4port router. Main PC is Windows 7 Home Prem x64, the other which is now a dedicated jukebox, XP Pro SP3 x86.

Both laptops also have minijack-to-phono leads from their headphone sockets to different inputs on the back of the same amplifier. So all computer audio comes out of the home cinema.

I remote desktop without problem, but when I work in another room (and unplug Win7 from home cinema) and open music (on XP), I can't hear it from the hifi - only the Win7 laptop's speakers.

Is there a way to play audio remotely, and not have it sent via wifi to play locally?

Little help please?

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 OEM --> RTM clean install

OK, so I should clarify that I have tried (it doesn't work for my desktop shortcut) but:

Start --> Search "Remote" --> Open --> options --> local resources --> "play audio remotely" doesn't work. 'Play locally' works, but remote doesn't.

Help, please!

REMOTE audio: I have a similar problem to this one

Instead of an XP machine hooked to an audio amp I have a WINDOWS 7 & cannot get any output from that mahine if I log onto it remotely. Where do I look to change the settings? I found under CONTROL PANEL the SOUND utility & when I double click it displays an ICON with REMOTE AUDIO & double clicked properties. I both disabled & enabled the device & nothing.

Do I need to do this from the REMOTE machine?

Using Remote Desktop instead of Remote Assistance for remote helpdesk?
Hi I know there are other products out there, like vnc, ultravnc, teamviewer etc etc, but really nothing beats the sheer speed of remote desktop, it's like sitting in front of the actual computer. I also know about Remote Assistance built into Windows 7. I would like to use remote desktop...
