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.

Common Commands

These Amulet commands are often useful for testing, since they make it easy to check that your Amulet system is working correctly, or to restore Media Center to a known good state.

Finding out the time

WHAT TIME IS IT?
WHAT’S THE TIME?
WHAT IS THE TIME?

Speaks the current system time.

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

REPEAT BACK {SENTENCE}

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.

{SENTENCE}

This can be any phrase you like; Amulet will repeat it verbatim without attempting to make sense of it.

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.
