I have a Media Centre PC which I also want to control from the computer I am usually working at (both systems running under Windows XP). I connect to the Media Centre PC by Windows Remote Desktop, which works fine, however with one serious problem. The audio from the Media Centre PC is redirected to the computer I am working on. Is it possible to switch of audio redirection using Windows Remote Desktop? And if so, how?
