Charging Your Remote PDF Print E-mail
Voice Remote

Your Amulet Voice Remote uses a rechargeable battery. Under normal circumstances, this should provide up to several days of regular voice use.

If the battery level becomes low, the voice capability will automatically stop functioning to conserve power, and you will no longer see a solid red light when you lift the remote up to activate the microphone. You can still continue to use buttons as normal to interact with your Media Center.

If the battery level becomes too low, normal operations will not be possible and instead, you will see the Amulet Logo flash amber whenever you try and press a key. You should recharge your remote before continuing to use it.

To charge your remote, connect the small connector on the supplied charging cable to the charging port at the bottom of your remote. Then plug the other end of the cable into a free USB port on your Media Center or a spare USB port on any other device, and your remote will start to charge.

During charging, the Amulet Logo will flash green. When charging is complete, the Logo will change to solid green and you can unplug the cable. Charging takes up to four hours for a fully depleted battery.

HANDY HINT

You do not need to wait until your Amulet Remote battery has completely run down before recharging it – you can recharge it whenever convenient, for example every night or two.

 
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.
