    How can I change the quality of screen sharing in Snow Leopard? I've tried adjusting defaults write controlObserveQuality but I'm having no luck. It always streams at full quality which leads to painfully slow screen refreshes. Thanks.

    Actually, both of the quality options are greyed out. However, by manually launching the Screen Sharing app, I can go to preferences, and set it to adaptive.

    Even on adaptive though, the refresh rate is slow, and the quality is higher than ideal. Something 8bit or black and white would work much better for my purposes, but I can't seem to be able to do this. (It was possible in the early days of 10.5 though)
