General

For an overview of how Amulet allows you to work with music, watch the video “Music Help” by choosing the Help Videos icon on the Amulet menu strip within Windows Media Center.

Start by saying GO TO MUSIC. This displays the Amulet music screen where a scrolling carousel on the left shows a selection of music by artists in your collection. A center panel shows songs in the current playlist, while albums in the playlist appear in a vertical strip to the right.

Use the commands listed under Music Commands to select music by artist. When you choose an artist, music by that artist automatically starts to play. You can then select individual albums or songs by that artist by referring to the song window and album list. When selecting song or album titles, you can say part or all of the full title and Amulet will try to find the best match available.

How do I install the Amulet software? PDF Print E-mail
Installation

On most systems, simply exit Media Center to the Windows desktop, insert the Amulet software CD, and the installation will begin automatically. If you are prompted by Windows to run Setup, just click the Setup icon.

The installation cannot be carried out while Media Center is running; if you insert the CD when Media Center is active, Amulet will ask you to exit first.

 
Amulet not responding to commands PDF Print E-mail
Troubleshooting

Make sure that the red light on the remote lights solidly while you speak your command. The logo at the top of the remote should be 6-8 inches away from your mouth when you speak. Lower the remote after speaking your command, to turn off the microphone.

Open the Amulet Music screen from the Amulet menu strip on the Media Center start page. Use the microphone meter in the lower left corner to confirm that Amulet is listening to you. As you speak into the remote, you should see the microphone level meter increasing and decreasing.

When Amulet recognizes a command, it displays a confidence level from 30%-100% above the microphone meter. If the confidence level is too low, it is displayed in red and your command will be ignored. Successfully recognized commands appear in the center of the display.

If you continue to have problems, restart Media Center and repeat the checks above.
