Music Commands

PLAY ALBUM {ALBUM NAME}
PLAY ALBUM NUMBER {NUM}
SHOW ALBUM {ALBUM NAME}
SHOW ALBUM NUMBER {NUM}

Selects one of the currently playing artist’s albums, and shows or plays the songs on that album.

{ALBUM}

The name of an album in your music library by the most recently selected musical artist or band. For example, to listen to Voodoo Lounge by the Rolling Stones, you first select the artist with PLAY ARTIST ROLLING STONES and then select the album, PLAY ALBUM VOODOO LOUNGE.

If the album name is long, you need only say part of the name, and Amulet will find the best match.

{NUM}

When viewing the Amulet music screen, all available albums are shown in a scrolling display to the right of the display. You can choose an album using one of the numbers shown here, if you prefer, instead of using the album name.

EXAMPLES

PLAY ALBUM CROWDED HOUSE
PLAY ALBUM NUMBER 2

PLAY ANOTHER ALBUM
SHOW ANOTHER ALBUM

Plays or shows another album at random by the currently playing artist.

 
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.

 
How should I organize my downloaded videos? PDF Print E-mail
General

Simply copy downloaded video files to the folders you have told Windows Media Center to monitor, and Amulet will detect them automatically. Movie filenames should simply be the name of the film. TV series episodes should follow the form "Series Name SxxExx Episode name", where Sxx and Exx are the Season and Episode numbers. For example, "Mad Men S01E12.avi" is Season 1, Episode 12 of the TV series Mad Men.

For other videos, such as home movies and unrecognised files, Amulet groups them according to the name of their containing disk folder.
