I'm using RDP to Remote Desktop from a Windows 7 machine to another Windows 7 machine, so it's RDP 7. I've got the colour depth set at 32 bits and can confirm that 32 bit colour is working properly because I'm able to use Aero over the remote desktop connection which requires 32 bit colour. I also connected to a 2008 server box at 32 bits and confirmed from the server side that the connection was using 32 bit colour.
The problem is images still look crap and have all sorts of colour banding as if they were still being sent as 16 bit images, even though the connection is supposedly 32 bits. I'm planning on using the connection for image processing and as such need the full colour depth in the images otherwise the environment is useless to me.
Ideas or experiences?
