RDP sound latency with RDesktop client and Server 2003 Terminal Services
I'm just testing our thin client setup- old RM all-in-one machines, network booting with a gPXE image loaded from a floppy drive:
start - Etherboot/gPXE Wiki
and loading Slax from a TFTP / web server. Slax includes rdesktop, which is then set to connect to the Windows Server 2003 Terminal Services machine we currently use for SIMS clients:
Obviously, sound doesn't matter much for SIMS so we've never thought to check before. However, it turns out that playing a YouTube video works fine except that the sound turns up a couple of seconds behind the graphics. The sound itself seems quite good quality, just late.
rdesktop -f -k en-gb -r sound:local 10.0.0.54
Is this due to Server 2003 - is the problem solved with Server 2008 R2? Is the problem with RDesktop, or Slax - is there anything I can do client-side to sort the problem? Is the issue to do with our network - is it just too slow?
Is there anything I can install server-side to sort this problem out?
