I have been trying for a while to get Remote Desktop to work in Media Center but with no success. I just recently noticed that there is an option under ‘Settings’ to enable Remote Desktop – and once I went through this simple setup it works! I don’t remember seeing this before Rollup 2, but maybe I was just missing it. It is kind of strange that it seems you have to use this option under Media Center settings to enable Remote Desktop. I did enable Remote Desktop manually under the Remote Desktop tab under My Computer but that didn’t seem to do anything. So if you want to get Remote Desktop working, then I suggest trying it through Media Center.
And Microsoft does only allow one user logged into the system at one time. I can understand trying to limit this so their software license isn’t abused, but I would think that allowing at least two people would be the default – otherwise you can’t be doing anything on your home theater while you are logged in remotely.
