Windows 7: aero remote desktop

aero remote desktop

hi guys, am loving windows 7 truly and have pre-ordered ultimate for october.
currently i am using my 64-bit machine as a server on the main TV and am using my dell mini 9 (xp home) as a remote screen and keyboard for when the missus is watching TV, it works great and am using the tscon.exe RDP-Tcp#0 /dest:console code to end the session and keep the user logged in afterwards, it all works great, however i cannot get the aero effects on my dell mini 9, as far as i am aware from searching it should just mirror the host pc irrespective of the clients hardware but i also read that DWM shuts down when RDC is used.
is there a workaround to stop DWM sclosing or a reg hack to keep aero activated on my home network connection that anybody knows of as i feel that without aero i am missing some of the 7 experiance or will the release of RDC 7.0 for xp will this issue be resolved?

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...

Remote Desktop and AERO
I have used RDC to connect to my university account (Server 2008) and Aero works just fine through there, but when I try to connect to my computer (from my brother's laptop, which is running 7), it disables AERO. I have all the settings enabled. Is there any way around this or does it always,...
