I have a sound distribution system for my house using an XP pro machine running WMP10. To control it, I use notebooks as 'remote controls' by going in via Remote Desktop.
There are two strange things:
1. It all works as expected when I RD in from an XP machine - the tracks play on the host, and the sound gets round the house nicely. But if I RD in from a notebook running W7, I get the same interface showing up, but the playback is on my notebook, not on the host. Any ideas?
2. I suspect that this is just a feature of WMP, but if I break the RD connection(from my XP notebook), the track stops playing, although WMP remains open on the host.
