By flyingstretch ·
heres a big one, one desktop PC with XP PRO, which has 2 external drives on it, the desktop is never really used, its in the basement. I use my laptop with VISTA, i have full access to my 2 external hard drives! my problem is, say i start WINAMP on the desktop from my laptop, music will play through my laptop, which isnt exactly what i want, my amplified speaker (which are in the livingroom)are pluged into the desktop! if i start winamp from the desktop, start a song, sound comes out of the speakers like I want! now what i want to do, is be able to start WINAMP on the desktop from the laptop, and still have the music playing from the desktop!

anyhelp will be greatly appriciated!

they are networked, and i can do the remote desktop, and i get full control of my desktop via the laptop, as i want, my problem is, say i start up media player, on the desktop, start a movie, sound will come out my laptop, which i dont want, i want the sound to come out of the desktop! i know i can be done, cause if i first start media player at the desktop, start my movie, then do the remote desktop thing, sound still comeout of the desktop and i can still advance pause or whatever with the laptop! i just want to be able to never have to go to my desktop!

thanks

Open the options, Local Resources Tab, Remote Computer Sound use the drop down to change it to "Leave at Remote Computer".
