This is a useful command to check that Amulet is listening and responding to commands correctly.

You can use it at any time without interrupting other activities you may be carrying out.

Checking the Audio Quality

Repeats back what you said, to allow you to check the quality of your audio connection. This is a good way to make sure Amulet can hear you clearly.

EXAMPLES
REPEAT BACK AMULET CAN YOU HEAR ME?

Reset the Media Center Display

SET MEDIA CENTER FULL SCREEN
MAXIMIZE MEDIA CENTER
MAXIMIZE (MCE / AMULET)

These commands all restore the Media Center display to full screen if it was previously running in a desktop window.
