Control4 System User Guide

My Music Icon

Use the Control4® system Listen > My Music icon on your Navigators to control your digital audio collections or Internet music.

 

Tips:

(1) Control4 recommends that you use the My Music icon to get to your favorite albums and songs quickly (rather than using the CD or other Listen-related icons).

(2) The HC-1000 supports 7200 albums.

(3) You can have your dealer or installer set up scheduled scanning. That way, when you add new files you'll know when the scheduled scanning takes place and when your new music is available in My Music.

 

Notes:

(1) Local playlists cannot be combined with Rhapsody playlists (in Rhapsody); however, Rhapsody playlists can be added to My Music playlists.

(2) The music lookup service is Gracenote®.

 

Other Media Managers. You can use other media managers, for example, iTunes, Windows Media player, and Media Monkey to create MP3s.

Prerequisites

  1. Ensure that your Control4 installer has added and configured the devices you will be using to listen to and manage music in your Control system.
  2. Ensure that your installer has added your playlists using Composer or the Navigators.

Procedures

To play songs in My Music:
