Any way to hear sound (i.e, picked up by the iChat camera or an attached mike or other sound input) from a remote Mac via Remote Desktop? I have searched all over the app's options and online instructions for it, and I can't find coverage, instructions or capability. Am I missing something here, obvious or otherwise?

    Sorry but no, ARD cannot transmit sound. I'm not aware of any remote-control app for Mac that can (other than iChat which, to the best of my knowledge, you can't connect without user intervention on the receiving end).
