Panel Options

Controls which regions of the Amulet Movie and TV screens have panel highlights displayed. Choose from All, Info (highlight only the information panel), Menu (highlight only the media menu) or None.

Default: All

Numbered Lists

If this is turned on, the Amulet media screens include numbers beside each menu item to make it easy to select media by number as well as by name.

Default: On

Show Totals for Lists

Normally, submenu names on the Amulet media screens include the number of items on the submenu beside the name. For a cleaner look, you can turn these totals off.

Default: On

Recognize Partial Song and Album Names

Recognize Partial TV and Movie Names

Recognize Partial Photo Names

Song, album, and video title names can often be quite long. Amulet allows you to select items for playback by speaking only part of the name. If you prefer to always say the full name, you can turn these options off for improved accuracy.

Default: On

Default Music Page

Controls what Amulet does if you ask it to play music while you are watching a TV program or movie. Start Menu returns to the Media Center start page, Amulet Music displays the Amulet music page, and None returns to the page that was active before the video playback began.

Default: None

 
Amulet fails to recognize any Artist commands PDF Print E-mail
Speech Recognition

There is a known issue with version 2.17.50 affecting the list of artists that Amulet uses for voice commands.

Incorrectly tagged MP3s with artist names containing double-quotation marks will cause the artist vocab to be rejected, resulting in no PLAY ARTIST capability. Workaround is to correct MP3 tags, or remove those artists from your collection. Search ArtistList.txt to identify problematic artists.

From further experimentation, unbalanced double-quotes cause the problem; a matching pair within an Artist name do NOT cause the issue.

For example

At the River [12" Orig. Mix]

This is not a real artist, but it's from a messed-up MP3 tag, and would cause the problem.

When to use Speech Profiles PDF Print E-mail
Speech Profiles

The Amulet Remote is designed to recognize 98% of people at installation time. It uses a learning algorithm to learn your voice as you use it.

If several people with very different voices will be using your Amulet Remote you should consider the use of speech profiles to improve each individual’s experience rather than using the same profile for everyone. This is often the case if young children with high‐pitched voices may be using Amulet.

Speech profiles allow multiple speakers to be supported. Watch the video “Speech Profile Help” to see how to use and setup new profiles. After installation, a “Default Speech Profile” is created, but you can add additional profiles as needed.

To add new speech profiles, you will need access to a keyboard and mouse connected to your Media Center system.
