Operation Of the Juke Box

This section of the manual describes the various settings and the operation of the Jukebox. Do not unplug or connect any components whilst the unit is powered up (except for USB devices)

Pictures in this manual of circuit boards may show circuit boards that are colored differently to those which are actually supplied. This is because the boards may vary in revision levels, however the various references to controls and connectors on the circuit boards remain valid.

Operation

The very fist thing that you will need to do after completing installation of the jukebox kit is to load up some media files for it to play.

What is a Media File?

A media file is any Music, Video, Karaoke or Advertising Image.

Connecting a Mouse and Keyboard

This section will describe the connection of a mouse and keyboard. The Key board and Mouse are only required for adjusting the settings on the Jukebox See Option Settings Screen whilst leaving them connected will not do any harm they are not required for normal operations, We recommend that they be removed if not in use. The connections of the mouse and keyboard are shown in Figure 13 The type of Mouse and keyboard can be any PS2 types.

CAUTION! Ensure that the power to the machine is switched off before connecting or removing the mouse and keyboard.

In the Demonstration version of this program the Mouse and Key board will of course already be connected to the computer system.

To install the mouse and keyboard the logic enclosure must be opened to gain access to the main circuit board. Plug the mouse and keyboard into the positions shown and switch on the machine. Copyright Majestic Gaming Revision 1.01 Page 27 of 53

Figure 13 (Mouse and Keyboard Connections)

Keyboard Connector (Purple)

Mouse Connector (Green)

Loading Media onto the Hard Drive

This Digital Jukebox will play the following media files

Playable Media Table

Type Audio Video Karaoke File Type Normal Audio only files MP3 or WMA Video Clips MPEG Movie Karaoke Audio and Text Clips File Extension Required .MP3 .WMA .MPG .MP3 (audio file) and .CDG (text file) Both are required for each track and must have the same file name followed by the extension .JPG

Advertising Advertising Images JPEG Format

The Digital Jukebox will search for the media listed in the Playable Media Table above each time it powers up. All of the media is stored (and must be loaded by you) on a hard drive, This is normally a USB pocket media drive which enables quick and easy loading of media by simply connecting it to a computer that has access to your media files.

Copyright Majestic Gaming Revision 1.01 Page 28 of 53

Once the Media Files Have been loaded onto the Pocket drive it can then be plugged into the digital jukebox board and it will then be searched for suitable media when the jukebox powers up. There is no particular requirement on the media files that can be used, provided they are suitable and stored in the correct place (Folder) on the hard drive the program will find them and number them for use. It is not necessary for the files to be sorted or numbered in any other way. The only requirements are that the Media files are stored in the correct Folders and that the media files names are formatted as shown in the examples. This Jukebox kit can play any media file listed in the Playable Media Table without reference to license or copyright. This is so that users of our kits can purchase media from various sources and can even transfer CD's that they own to a suitable file format, which can then be played by this jukebox kit. Majestic Gaming does not supply media of any kind for use in this kit. We do not support, encourage or condone the use of illegal media in our products and we hereby advise all purchasers of this product that Audio and Video media is subject to copyright, and as such you must have purchased a legal copy of any such media to play in this jukebox kit.

Number of Media files of each type

The following are the number of each type of media that can be used in the digital jukebox. Type Audio Video clips Karaoke Albums Advertising Selection Numbers 0001 ­ 03999 9001 ­ 9999 4001 ­ 6999 7001 - 8999 (20 Tracks per album) Not applicable Approximate Total available 4000 1000 3000 50 albums (1000 tracks~) 200

Album tracks may not total 1000 because each allocated album has space for 20 tracks, so if an album only has 15 tracks then 5 of the available numbers will not be used. Also if an album has more than 20 tracks then the amount above 20 will be ignored.

Copyright Majestic Gaming Revision 1.01 Page 29 of 53

Naming of Media Files

The media files used in this digital Jukebox kit must be named as detailed in this section if they are to be displayed correctly by the selection system of the Jukebox. The Jukebox sorts the media tracks based on the Artist Name it also displays the Title of the track and the Artist Name in 2 separate lists on the main screen, so that users can make a selection. It is very important then that the media files are correctly named so that they are sorted and displayed correctly. The correct format for Music, Video & Karaoke tracks is as follows-: First the Artist Name then a Separator Symbol followed by the Track Title and finally the File Extension. The Separator Symbol is the "­" (minus) symbol.

Advertising tracks require only the Filename and file extension as shown in the examples.

Karaoke tracks will require two files for each track, both of which must be named the same except for the File Extension.

If your media files are not being found by the jukebox at power up the following could be the cause. 1. If the Separator symbol is not present in a file name, the media file will be ignored. If the File extension is not correct the file will be ignored. If the Media File is in the wrong folder it will be ignored.

2. 3.

If the artist name is appearing on the left hand side panel where the Track name should be, then the file is named in-correctly (see examples) If WMA files are ignored then please select the WMA option switch setting (see option switch settings).

Copyright Majestic Gaming Revision 1.01 Page 30 of 53

The following are examples of a correctly formatted media file name for use in this jukebox kit.

File NAME Advert FILE EXTENSION

Naming Album Tracks and Album Folders.

Album music tracks follow the same naming rules as Music tracks except that WMA files cannot be used. The album cover picture to be displayed follows the same rules as advertising image files. Each album has its own separate sub-directory located in the album directory.. Both the Music files and the Album image file must be located in the same Sub directory. If the Album cover image is omitted or missing then the jukebox will use default image in its place

a

Naming the Album sub Folders

The Album Name is taken from the name given to the sub folder that contains the Album Tracks and the Album Cover image. The name of the folder should have the Artist Name first followed by the separator and then the Album Name (See Figures 15 & 16 for an example)

Video clips cannot be placed into the album directories.

The album folder is where the albums will be stored, It is a little more complicated to store the albums because each one will have its own sub-folder and into that subfolder you should place the music files and album cover image associated with that particular album. An example of the album folder and the sub-folders is shown below.

Video and Monitor Options

Figure 32 Video and Monitor Settings

The Video and Monitor Options panel on the audit and setting screen is used to control how and where video is displayed.

Video and Monitor Option Settings Description Table

Setting Name Enable Primary Video Full Screen Description This option controls whether or not the video clips on the Primary (main screen) of the jukebox will remain in the bottom left corner or will expand to a large size in the center of the screen. If the option is selected (checked) then the video will expand to the center of the screen after 10 seconds or so of inactivity on the jukebox, as soon as a user touches the screen in touch screen mode or presses any key or volume control the video clip will return to the lower left corner of the screen and will again await for 10 or so seconds of inactivity to elapse before again expanding to the center of the screen. This option will make the video-text of karaoke tracks behave in the same manner as the video clips. If the option is NOT checked the Karaoke video-text will only be displayed in the lower left corner of the screen. This option is used to enable the second video screen output. (if available) Once this option is enabled (checked) all Video and Karaoke is directed to the second screen. Advertising is also directed to the second screen subject to it being enabled of course (see Advanced Option Settings) the advertising images will be displayed whenever Video and Karaoke tracks are not being played. In figure 32 the option is shown grayed out; this is because the availability of the second screen has not been detected so the feature cannot be selected.

If selected the Primary screen Video and Karaoke selections will behave as set by the option settings for the Primary Monitor.

Notes for Dual Screen Mode Operation

· · · · Additional equipment is required to have this feature operate, Such as the LCD to DVI interface PCB. Part number EPM-1522-24-A1R The Bios Settings for the LCD Panel should be selected to 24bit single channel mode. (Would normally be done prior to shipping the kit) The windows desktop should be enabled to expand onto the second screen in the windows desktop properties settings. The DVI output cannot be converted to VGA by the use of a DVI to VGA converter, ONLY DVI enabled monitors with a standard DVI connector can be used, (This applies to nearly all LCD monitors currently available) If the Option selections are grayed out as shown in figure 32 then a second screen was not detected by the program when it started up. The detection of the second screen is a Windows function and is not dependant upon the presence of the additional circuit board mentioned above. The most likely cause of the second screen not being detected is an incorrect setting in the windows desktop properties settings, please call or email Majestic Gaming for advice and setting instructions. The Dual Screen Feature is not available in Demonstration Versions of the Software.
