Does Amulet work with the standard Windows Media Center screens? PDF Print E-mail
General

Yes, most Amulet commands operate from anywhere within Media Center. We do recommend that you use the special Amulet user interface screens whilst you are becoming familiar with Amulet, since they provide immediate visual feedback to let you know your commands are being recognised.

As you become more used to Amulet, you can start to use the commands independently of whatever screen you are viewing. You can even issue Amulet commands when your screen is turned off, if you have your audio output connected to separate speakers.

Settings

These settings control how Amulet responds to you with spoken replies.

Voice Style

Selects which of your installed synthetic voices Amulet should use to talk to you. The standard Amulet voice is called Paul, but if you have a third‐party voice, you can select it here.

Default: Paul

Extra Vocalisation

When enabled, Amulet reads out additional information about program entries when you browse the Amulet movie, TV and video pages.

Default: Off

Stay Quiet From … Until

Tells Amulet the hours to avoid disturbing you with information messages. For example, if Media Center restarts during the night, Amulet avoids speaking its usual Welcome message so that you are not woken up if your sound system is still turned on.

Default: From 2 am to 6 am

Troubleshooting

Move the remote close to the USB dongle. Check that a solid or flashing blue LED can be seen on the dongle. If not, plug the dongle into a different USB port. If the dongle light remains flashing blue when the remote's logo is flashing red, try recharging your remote. If the problem persists, check out the PAIRING section of the User Guide.

Will Amulet recognize different users? PDF Print E-mail
Speech Recognition

If required, Amulet allows you to use different profiles for each speaker. You can select your profile by simply saying "This is John" (or whatever your name is) and Amulet will then use that profile when recognising any additional commands.
