Hi,


I recently upgraded my 2 yr old HTPC from Vista Ultimate to Win 7 Ultimate. Everything seemed to go fine (did a clean install - not upgrade) except when I try to play music with WMC while connecting to it via remote desktop. When I do the sound is quickly muted and shows the muted icon in playback and devices screen. This only happens when connecting via remote desktop. The sound is fine if I log in at the HTPC. The sound also plays fine if I play music from the internet through a browser. Its just the combination of WMC/Win 7 and using remote desktop. I have done searches on this and have found others having this problem, but no solution - some say it is a bug in WMC - but I don't know. I have all the latest updates for Win 7 and the latest drivers. Anyone have an idea?


Thanks,


Ed

Thanks for responding. Yes, I should have stated in the original post that the RDP connection is set to leave the sound at the host. It works fine if I have the host (HTPC) play music from the internet and it also works fine if I play music using Windows Media Player on the HTPC. The sound only gets muted when I try to play music using Windows Media Center.
