We recommend you read the Common Commands section first and become familiar with these before moving on to commands for specific types of media. You can also read through the chapters in sequence if you want to be familiar with all operations before starting. If a command is not working as you expected, check the troubleshooting topics.

 
Can I use the Amulet remote to control my other infra-red A/V equipment? PDF Print E-mail
Voice Remote

Yes, the Amulet remote has IR learning capability and you can teach it to transmit the buttons from any other standard infra-red controller. There are several directly programmable buttons on the main keypad, and the coloured macro buttons allow access to many additional learnt functions.

Voice Remote

Your remote has two additional capabilities which are occasionally useful.

Deep Sleep Mode

If you are transporting your Amulet Voice Remote, buttons may be accidentally pressed in transit, or the remote may tilt enough to activate the microphone. If either occurs for an extended time, the battery will run down.

To avoid this, you can put the remote into a deep sleep. Press and hold the DVD Menu and TV Power buttons simultaneously, and the Amulet Logo will flash green twice. The remote is now asleep, and will ignore button presses and movement.

To wake it again, press the green Media Center start button in the center of the remote, or briefly connect the charging cable to a USB port.

Firmware Version Report

Your Amulet Voice Remote can report the current version of firmware it is operating. To do this, switch to the Windows Desktop and open Notepad or Wordpad.

Point the remote at your IR receiver and press and hold the Profile button in the upper right corner.

While holding Profile, press and release DVD Menu. The remote will send the version number as numeric characters which are then typed into the current document.

For example, “1*73” means the remote is using firmware version 1.73.

Settings

For most users, Amulet’s default installation settings work well and allow you to immediately start using voice commands. For more advanced users, Amulet has many configuration settings that can be adjusted according to personal preference. These settings are described here.

To access the Amulet Settings page, navigate to the Amulet menu strip on the Media Center start page and select the Settings option.

Alternatively, use the Amulet voice command GO TO SETTINGS and you will be taken straight there.

After the Settings page opens, use the horizontal menu selector at the top to move between the General, Listener, Talker, Talker Volumes, General Volumes, and Extras screens. Each screen controls a different aspect of Amulet.

After making any changes, use the Save option on the left to save your new settings and return to Media Center. While most setting changes happen immediately, some will only take effect the next time you restart Media Center.
