Got a new Acer Aspire Revo today to use for movies and music.
Windows 7 Home Premium came preinstalled, along with at least 20 games and other bloatware I had to uninstall!
Anyway, I digress. The real issue is the absence of RDP (remote desktop) on the pc. I was relying on this to be able to administer remotely (leaving the tv unaffected).
Fortunately I don't appear to be alone in wanting this functionality, and a quick search revealed other's frustrations and (of course) a solution....
