    Ok, So I wanted to watch a movie on my iMac and didnt want to have to get to my desk to change the volume or anything, so I got to thinking about Screen Sharing, and it works nice for mirroring the screen, but is there anyway i can send the audio thru screen sharing at all? Or do i need to use some other method of using sound thru screen sharing?

    i don't think any of the free screen sharing / vnc type apps transfer audio. there are some paid versions that do. if you look on wikipedia there's a big table that compares a lot of the vnc solutions out there - some do say they do audio
