SBS 2008 RWW cannot disable sound redirection to remote user

I have the following scenarion;

SBS 2008 with users operating from remote PC's using RWW to their work desktops which are running Win XP SP3.

The problem;

They can connect fine and use the PC but I am trying to improve performance and I cannot find a way to disable sound for the remote user.  I have checked the tsweb.aspx settings and they seem to be OK - see below...

'targetMachineName connecting text
                  Document.all.remoteDesktopSession.innerHtml = TSRemoteDesktopSession_Text
                  Document.all.connectingPleaseWait.innerHtml = Replace(TSConnectingPleaseWait_Text, ReplaceString0, targetMachineName)
                  Document.all.ifCloseThisWindow.innerHtml = TSConnectingIfCloseThisWindow_Text

                  
                  MsRdpClient.DesktopWidth  = sresWidth
                  MsRdpClient.DesktopHeight = sresHeight
                  MsRdpClient.Width        = resWidth
                  MsRdpClient.Height        = resHeight
                  
                  'Device redirection options
                  MsRdpClient.AdvancedSettings2.RedirectDrives                   = FALSE
                  MsRdpClient.AdvancedSettings2.RedirectPrinters                   = FALSE
                  MsRdpClient.AdvancedSettings2.ConnectToServerConsole             = FALSE
                  if MsRdpClient.SecuredSettingsEnabled then
                        '0 = Redirect remote sounds to the client.
                        '1 = Play sounds at the remote computer.
                        '2 = Disable sound redirection; do not play sounds at the server.
                        MsRdpClient.SecuredSettings.AudioRedirectionMode       = 2
                  end if
                  
                  MsRdpClient.AdvancedSettings2.RedirectSmartCards             = FALSE
                  MsRdpClient.AdvancedSettings2.RedirectPorts                   = FALSE
                  MsRdpClient.AdvancedSettings2.EnableAutoReconnect             = FALSE
                  MsRdpClient.AdvancedSettings2.MinutesToIdleTimeout             = <%=timeoutInMinutes%>
                  MsRdpClient.AdvancedSettings4.ConnectionBarShowRestoreButton       = FALSE
                  MsRdpClient.ConnectingText                               = "<%=RWWUtilities.QuoteVbscriptString(loadResString("L_RUP_CONNECTING"))%>"
                  
                  ' Performance settings
                  MsRdpClient.AdvancedSettings2.PerformanceFlags = 111
                  MsRdpClient.AdvancedSettings2.BitmapPersistence = 1

Anyone know how to fix this or correct me if I am doing something wrong.

Thank you for the vey quick reply and detailed description.

My next step would have been to investigate Group Policy, but as everyone seemed to point to the tswewb.aspx file mods I was kind of sidetracked.

I also made some other changes in Group Policy such as colour depth, drive mapping etc and tested this last night, it works perfectly!  Thanks once again.
