SageTV color depth message

Whenever I run SageTV via remote desktop, I get the following message when starting..

"SageTV will not run well at the current color depth. Please change your color depth to 24 or 32 bits in Control Panel->Display->Settings"

How do I disable this message from coming up without changing my color depth?

That color-depth check not a Studio function; it's built into the SageTV core and can't be customized away (as far as I know).

Is there some reason you don't want to change your color depth? If it's a question of bandwidth, I'd suggest using Placeshifter to administer SageTV remotely.

If the problem is that you can't figure out how to make the 24-bit setting stick in Remote Desktop, there's a group policy setting that may be getting in your way. You can change this setting as follows:

On the host machine (where SageTV runs), run gpedit.msc (from a command prompt or from Start > Run).
Click open Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components.
Select Terminal Services.
In the right-hand pane, there's a setting called "Limit maximum color depth". If it says "Not configured", it's probably defaulting to 16 bits.
Double-click that setting, click Enabled, and choose "Client compatible" from the dropdown.

This should let you use 24-bit color from the connecting client.

Thanks, Cause even if I turned on 24 bit mode for Remote Desktop it still would give me the message.
