I'm pleased to announce that the new beta release of Amulet's Media Center software is now available for download. As we are growing close to a final production release, we have changed the version number to v3 to reflect this.

You can download the software and release notes here:
As always, please let us know how you get on by posting feedback here in the forum. In particular, we are keen to get as much feedback as possible on the new My Movies support. I have created a separate My Movies thread for discussion of this.

Now, here is a summary of changes since the previous releases, Beta 2.18.14, Beta 2.18.16 and Beta 2.18.17:

MY MOVIES 4.0 SUPPORT

Full My Movies 4 support is now included, allowing any movie or TV series / episode indexed by My Movies to be selected by voice, and voice control of the My Movies GUI. Full details are in the My Movies section of the Release Notes, but here are a few sample commands to give you a flavour:
  • GO TO MOVIES
  • GO TO TV SERIES
  • SHOW TV SERIES THE SHIELD
  • SHOW SEASON 5
  • WATCH EPISODE NUMBER 4
  • WATCH EPISODE OF MICE AND LEM
  • SHOW EPISODE 3
  • SHOW COMEDY MOVIES
  • SHOW SORT OPTIONS
  • SORT BY STAR RATING
  • SORT BY PRODUCTION YEAR
  • SHOW VIEW OPTIONS
  • VIEW COVERS AND DETAILS
  • LIST NOT WATCHED
  • LIST COMEDY

GENERAL ENHANCEMENTS
  • SEARCH YOUTUBE AGAIN command now repeats the most recent YouTube search
  • The debug log now records mic on/off events, and measures how long the mic was on for when a particular command was recognized, for diagnostic purposes
  • PLAY ARTIST and PLAY GENRE now immediately respond with the name of what is being played; previously, it waited until the playlist was fully built which could take several seconds
  • SOUND OFF / QUIET and similar commands now speak a response message before muting the sound, to make it easier to detect accidental invocations when no music is playing
  • Added MINIMIZE MEDIA CENTER, to complement existing MAXIMIZE MEDIA CENTER command
  • Amulet Talker now supports the command line option FILE filename to read the contents of a disk file out loud (useful for custom commands & scripts)

BUG FIXES
  • YouTube interface is now working again. The current implementation should be robust enough to deal with any likely YouTube player updates or enhancements.
  • Find Songs option in Amulet Settings, introduced in 2.17, now sets the correct option in Amulet.ini so should work correctly. Remember to say UPDATE MUSIC after turning on this setting or your song index won't exist. When enabled, the feature allows you to say FIND SONG name and create a playlist containing songs matching name.
  • EPG background scan no longer runs constantly on systems where all current guide data has expired.
  • PLAY GENRE now only recognizes musical genres, not video/TV genres
  • RUN and RUNBACK actions in Custom Commands now work correctly when the command line to execute contains an '=' symbol
  • Improved code to detect when YouTube plug-in currently has focus
  • Amulet.Scanner now correctly detects metadata from currently recording TV programs during its nightly scan of all programs (previously only worked when invoked automatically as the program began)
