Voice Remote

The Amulet Voice Remote is a learning remote. You can teach it infra‐red codes for any of your additional equipment, for example your TV or hi‐fi amplifier, and then use buttons on your Amulet remote to control those devices.

Amulet supports two types of learning: basic keys, which are available all the time, and extended keys, which are available only when a particular device keymap is selected.

Adding new media files to your collection PDF Print E-mail

In order to select media items by voice, they must appear in the Amulet media index. If an item appears on the Amulet user interface pages, then it is in the index and you can select it by name.

Amulet performs an initial scan of your media files during installation. Thereafter, it re‐indexes your media every night at 5 am.

Newly recorded TV shows are indexed automatically a few seconds after the recording finishes, so that you always have instant voice access to your latest TV programs.

When you import new music, photos or videos, into Media Center, you can ask Amulet to re‐index those files immediately using one of these voice commands:

  • RE‐INDEX CHANNEL NAMES (used when you edit your TV channel lineup)

Indexing takes place in the background, so you can continue to use Amulet as usual while the index is rebuilt. Amulet will tell you when indexing is complete, and you can then access your newly added media items by voice.

For more information on these, and other command variants, see the Amulet Speech Commands section.

TV Program Organization PDF Print E-mail

Amulet organizes your television programs into two categories:

  • Recorded TV includes any program that has been recorded directly on your Media Center.
  • TV Shows are programs containing multiple episodes. These include many recorded programs and also video files you may have downloaded from the Internet.

TV show episodes have both an episode name and a series name. You can select episodes directly using the episode name, or use the series name to show a list of all episodes in the series.

Can I install the software using remote desktop to my Media Center? PDF Print E-mail

Although you can install the software in this way, we do not recommend it since at present, your media collection will not index correctly. Please install the Amulet software using the main display and login on your Media Center system.

What does the Amulet ShuffleSongs option do? PDF Print E-mail

If you enable ShuffleSongs in the Amulet.ini configuration file, Amulet will randomise the songlist for any musical Artist you select, to provide more variety. Once randomised, you can browse and step through the songlist in the normal fashion.
