I just installed LogMeIn Free, and upon connecting to my remote computer a notification said
"Connection Alert - Remote sound is enabled. (...)"
How do I disable remote sound?

Nohano- are you sure you're not a software developer?
Thanks for your very specific suggestions. I'll pass this thread along to the product team. I apologize if there was some confusion.
I connect to computers that require that the audio not be interupted... Have sound option settings been added? I'm still on my logmein Pro trail, but need to make sure when I login to a compueter that the sound output is not interubted.
Thanks for sharing it. I spent trying to find where the option to disable it was... I was about to uninstall LMI as the remote PC was not able to use the camera's microphone when using Skype even when no LMI connection was active (other than in the background service).
This was until your post gave me the best hints. I hope this thing is at least documented as there is no mention in any user's guide. I agree that this option belongs to the Preferences tab.
PS I might be wrong but I had to disable it in both the host and the client computer to make it work.
i am having this issue and cannot figure out how to stop it. about every 6th time i restart my computer, the voulume changes to the logmeinsoudndriver and my sound goes away. then i need to go to system preferences of os x and change the sound to internal speakers. seems like a very poor design.
I'm having trouble in that on my G5 Xserves, I get pop-ups saying that the .kext for sound was installed incorrectly and cannot be used. This is a minor inconvenience, having to clear two pop-ups when I log in, but it's untidy and annoying. I don't need remote sound, they are headless units acting as media stores on my network. I can use ARD to operate them from my desktop, but I've put LogMeIn as a backup to ARD, and as a solution to remote control from outside my firewall and from my mobile iOS device.
If the client could be set so as not to look for, load or use the sound extensions, that'd be cool.
