The Home Page¶
Main home page view¶
This is the menu that will be seen when you press the HOME button on the front panel.
The <player name> shown below will indicate your machine network name. You can change the name by pressing the Home button -> Settings -> Encore Name and entering your own choice.
The main menu can be found by pressing the HOME button at any time.
When Now Playing is selected from the HOME menu, it will show you what the ENCORE is currently playing.
Pressing the PLAYING button also displays the NOW PLAYING screen from any other screen.
This section allows you to navigate the contents of your internal HDD.
From here you can search through your HDD content by Artists, Composers, Albums, Compilations, or the various other options available.
The text showing “m6encore-0002ff”, will actually read your ENCORE’s library name which will be different.
When you are in the RADIO menu you can find your preferred radio station in various ways.
Simply scroll to your preferred search method, Music, Sports, News, etc and press the enter button.
Continue from there via the various options.
When you are in the INPUTS menu you can choose the input connected to the external source you wish to listen to.
When you are in the CD Player menu just place the CD into the drive and it will automatically start playing the disc.
You can select which track you wish to play by using the TRACK FORWARD or TRACK BACKWARDS buttons on the right of the display.
If you place a disc into the drive WITHOUT SELECTING THE CD PLAYER MENU FIRST the disc will rip to the internal HDD by default.
You can add radio stations to your favourites menu simply by pressing the ADD button whilst the station is playing, scrolling down to SAVE TO FAVOURITES and pressing the ENTER button.
You can also add artists, albums, or individual tracks from the HDD to your favourites by simply pressing the add button whilst either the album or artist is highlighted in the menu, scrolling down to SAVE TO FAVOURITES and pressing the ENTER button.
If you select an artist, all of the content withing that artists listing will be saved.
If you selected either the album or a track from that album, only those will be saved.
Favourites can be removed by pressing the ADD button, scrolling down to DELETE FAVOURITE and pressing the ENTER button. This can be done with either the favourite highlighted or whilst playing.
The Search function allows you to search for music files in your library. This can be done by either fully or partially inputting the Artist name, Album Title, Track Title etc. You can also search using partial names. This will then take you to the relevant selection in the My Music section and you can continue your search from there.
A USB keyboard can be used to navigate the menus and inputting text. This can be either a wireless or USB cabled version. We would recomend using one of the back USB sockets if the keyboard is to be permanately connected. This will then leave the front USB socket free for easy device charging and non permanant connections.
Use the settings function to access player settings. We do not reccomend changing settings unless asked to by support.
Quit is used to properly power down the unit, and switch it off completely.
Mains power must ONLY be removed when the green screen appears saying:
“It is now safe to unplug your ENCORE”
Sleep mode puts the ENCORE into a lower power mode (approx. 5W) for when the device is not in use.
You can “wake” the ENCORE simply by: moving one of the control knobs push a button on the front panel or remote “Play” an radio stream or song from app
The unit will come back to life and be ready to use/playing selected source.
