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 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.

General

In general all commands can be spoken at all times. For example, you don’t need to be viewing the Amulet Music screen to select a music artist. Similarly, you don’t need to be viewing the Recorded TV screen to select a TV program. You can speak most commands at any time, and they will take effect immediately.

However, while you are learning how to use Amulet, we recommend that you go to the appropriate Amulet screen (music, photos, video, movies, or recorded TV) before you try out commands. The Amulet screens show you when the microphone is active, and also display commands as they are recognized, making it quicker and easier for you to get used to using the speech recognition.
