Refreshing and Updating Amulet’s Media Indexes PDF Print E-mail
Common Commands

Amulet automatically indexes all your media files every night, to ensure any newly added files are available to you through voice. Newly recorded TV programs are indexed as soon as the recording completes.

If you add new music files, photos or video files, or edit your TV channel lineup, you can issue one of these commands to ask Amulet to index the new files immediately.

(UPDATE / INDEX / RE‐INDEX) [TV] PROGRAMS
(UPDATE / INDEX / RE‐INDEX) CHANNEL NAMES

Updates the index for the chosen media type.

Amulet will advise when the indexing is complete, and your newly added media will then be available through voice commands and on the Amulet interface pages.

Common Commands

Speech profiles are an advanced Amulet feature that allows it to recognize commands from multiple speakers with very different sounding voices.

This section summarizes the voice commands used to control speech profiles. For more information, please see the Working with Speech Profiles chapter in the User Guide.

IDENTIFYING THE CURRENT PROFILE

WHO IS THIS?

WHAT [SPEECH] PROFILE IS THIS?

All of these commands cause Amulet to speak the name of the currently active Speech Profile.

Pressing the Profile button in the upper right corner of the Amulet Voice Remote also provides this information.

SELECT PROFILE {PROFILE}

Loads a new speech profile. A gentle chime plays to indicate when the profile is ready for use.
