NOTE
As of this version of software, only one receiver can be controlled by the
Amb-OS User Interface software on a single PC. With multiple receivers,
each receiver needs a separate computer controlling the individual receiver.
WARNING
One AMR-100 receiver can be controlled by multiple Amb-OS User Interface
programs on different computers, but without proper precautions,
unpredictable results can be experienced.
See Multiple Amb-OS User Interface Instances in the appendix.

INTRODUCTION
The Amb-OS User Interface (UI) works with the Amb-OS AMR-100 receiver to get satellite delivered programs
to automation systems or directly to the air chain quickly, conveniently and without user intervention. Transfers
can be done automatically, on schedule or manually. Programs can also be played back just like a live program
directly to the air chain.
1. Playlists can be created to allow programs to air or record directly from the AMR-100 receiver.
2. Programs can be transferred from the AMR-100 to a local computer for playback from an automation
system in the following ways:
○ Programs can be transferred as soon as they arrive
NOTE
○ Programs can be transferred on a schedule
The Amb-OS User Interface
○ Programs can be transferred manually
actually just copies programs from
3. When files are transferred, they can also be renamed and
the receiver to a local hard disk
converted to a WAV format regardless of the method of
and leaves the original file on the
transfer. The default file format is MP2.
AMR-100. However, “transfer” will
be used to refer to this process of
Transfer Options
copying programs.
○ The “Miscellaneous transfers” section describes how to
allow automatic transfers and renaming a program as soon
as it arrives.
○ The “Rename Files” section describes the process of scheduling a transfer and renaming a program.
○ The “Manual transfer” section describes how to manually transfer a program.
WARNING
To transfer programs, Amb-OS User Interface (UI), the computer must be on and the
UI running at all times.
The Amb-OS User Interface does not have to be running for the AMR-100 to play a
program from its audio ports.
After creating and saving a playlist, it gets transferred to the AMR-100. After being transferred, the AMR-100
will automatically play the programs without any user intervention. If no file transfers are used, the Amb-OS
User Interface only has to be running when creating or editing the playlist.
The Amb-OS User Interface also has two log windows (the “Activity Log” and “Status Window”) to help
troubleshoot problems and, more importantly, display the status of programs being received and transferred. The
most used window is the “Activity Log,” because it shows which programs have arrived and whether they were
transferred.
AMB-OS USER INTERFACE SUMMARY
The Amb-OS User Interface can either transfer programs from the AMR-100 receiver or create a playlist for the
AMR-100 receiver that will play a program at a specific time to air live or record. Transferring programs can be
done in three ways—Automatically, timed and manually.

INSTALLATION
Download the Amb-OS User Interface from http://www.Amb-OS.com/support.html. Click on the link for User
Interface (UI) Software and save the compressed zipped file to your computer. Extract the Amb-OS User
Interface installation program and run the Amb-OS User Interface installation program.
The installation process automatically installs the Amb-OS icon on the desktop. Double click on the
desktop icon labeled “Amb-OS Interface” to run the Amb-OS User Interface program.
The appendix has detailed instructions for downloading, extracting and installing the Amb-OS User
Interface software.
WARNING
With Windows 8, do not use compatibility mode when installing the Amb-OS
User Interface. This can cause the program to not function properly.
®
PROGRAM OPERATION
After completing the program installation (see “Installation Details” in the “Appendix”), the User Interface will
need to have the “Initial settings” (“System information” and “file renames”) configured before running the
program for the first time. The “Initial settings” can be imported from a local file, the receiver and from the
Ambassador FTP site (see “Initial Installation” in the “Appendix”). If no import file is used the settings will
have to be set manually.
Click on “Exit” to terminate the Amb-OS User Interface. A confirmation window will open and, and after
confirming the decision to exit, a window will open that delays termination for three seconds to prevent
programs in the process of transferring from becoming corrupted.

Top Menu, Button, Window and Message Explanation
The Amb-OS User Interface has a Top Menu, various buttons, windows and some messages.
The Top Menu
System info: Opens the dialog box to change the receiver settings. If the network administrator changes the
IP Address for the AMR-100 or if it is replaced, the IP address in the receiver parameters will need to be
changed to match the AMR-100.
Rename files: Opens the “File Rename” dialog box to allow changing program names when transferring
them from the AMR-100 to the destination directory. A transfer time can also be entered. If no name is
selected, the program will be transferred with the default Amb-OS system name it has on the AMR-100.
Playlist editor: Opens the Playlist Editor dialog box to define the time and port the AMR-100 uses for audio
playback.
Files/Transfers: Opens a box showing the programs on the AMR-100, how they are transferred (timed or
automatically) and the transferred name. It also gives the option to manually transfer a program.
Tools: Allows importing and exporting of individual settings: Receiver IP, destination directory, file naming
list and transfers and other customized information. It also shows approved programs for the AMR-100
and what files have been received. Programs can be checked for errors and played from the AMR-100’s
audio ports. Several other utilities have also been included.
Support: Amb-OS support personnel use these options to
troubleshoot issues with the Amb-OS User Interface and should
only be used when directed by an Amb-OS support personnel.
“Backup files to Ambassador” and “Update UI” can be used. If
the Amb-OS User Interface computer does not have Internet
access, make sure the “Do not send email” is checked in the
“Backup and Notifications” settings in the “System
Information.”
NOTE
Some support options
require the computer
running the Amb-OS User
Interface be connected to
the Internet.
FTP: Configures the Amb-OS User Interface to download programs from an FTP site. The FTP transfer can
modify the file as specified in the “Output Format” settings in “System Information.” MP3 files cannot
be converted or modified.
NOTE
MP3 transfers through the FTP option cannot be converted or modified.
Help: Brings up the help window with several documentation files, links and updates. It also shows the
current version of the Amb-OS User Interface.

Destination Dir: This allows changing the directory where programs are transferred from the AMR-100.
Edit Queue: Allows reordering of the files in the queue.
Refresh: This button forces the Amb-OS User Interface to read the AMR-100 hard disk and update the file
list.
Enable Misc Transfers: When checked, the Amb-OS User Interface automatically transfers programs in the
Transfer queue. If any program does not have a timed transfer set, it will not transfer unless the Enable
Misc Transfers box is checked. File transfers are not used if programs are only played out the audio
ports on the AMR-100.
WARNING
“Enable misc transfers” has to be checked to automatically transfer a
program with no scheduled transfer time.
Exit: This terminates the Amb-OS User Interface. A confirmation window opens and, after confirming the
decision to exit, another window opens providing a three second delay to prevent programs currently
transferring from becoming corrupted.

Amb-OS User Interface Notices
Displays the EbNo range over the last 24 hours, the time of the next refresh of received programs, time and
date for the next backup and the last backup with it’s status.
● EbNo reports the EbNo values from the AMR-100. With the AMR-100I (Internet only receiver), the
EbNo is 0.00 – 0.00, because no RF is used.
● Next Refresh shows the next time the automated refresh will happen to insure that the latest information
about program transfers are current and gets the latest program information from the receiver. Next
refresh shows the time of the next refresh to check the status of programs on the AMR-100.
● Next Backup shows the time the next back up of the Amb-OS User Interface settings.
● Last Backup reports the time and status of the last backup.
The Amb-OS User Interface can export the settings to a desired file, but the settings are automatically
uploaded to the Amb-OS FTP site and to the AMR-100 receiver. If the Amb-OS User Interface does not
have an Internet connection, be sure to check “Do not backup to FTP” in the “System information” settings.

Time Ping: The message “time ping” only occurs when the program is first initiated. It queries the receiver
for its time once a minute, so it can take
up to a minute for the time to appear.
After the program successfully
communicates with the receiver and gets
the time, the message “time ping” changes
to the current time of the receiver.
While The seconds are displayed as part
reading the time from the receiver, the
seconds do not update, because the time is
only updated every 60 seconds. Therefore,
the seconds do not update on the screen.
This only verifies the AMR-100’s time has
been read.

Receiver Parameters
The IP Address and serial number can be obtained from the
front panel of the AMR-100. Press <ENTER> once on the
AMR-100 to view the settings and verify them in the
dialog box.
Program Update Option
Updates can either be installed automatically or the AmbOS User Interface can prompt to install it immediately or
manually update to the new version at a later time.
1. “Install it” automatically updates the Amb-OS User Interface (preferred).
2. “Ask me first” will prompt for permission to install the update immediately or at a later time.
To insure proper functioning of the Amb-OS User Interface, select “Install it” to avoid having issues in
transferring programs.
NOTE
If the setting for the program updates is set to “Install it,” the Amb-OS User Interface
will automatically install the update and keep the settings from the previous version
when restarting the program.
Output format
Transferred programs can be converted to a WAV format or left as the
default Amb-OS MP2 format.
mp2 leaves the program in its native format (48K, MP2 encoding)
and just transfers the program using the specified name in the
“Renaming Files.” With the MP2 format, more options exist to
use or manipulate the Cart Chunk data. Some automation
systems require changes to the Cart Chunk information, for
example, some Audio Vault® systems need to have the “Cut ID cleared” box checked in the “Cart
chunk” section. Using the MP2 format, the file extension can be changed, but the “Output channels”
cannot be changed.
wav48K leaves the program in its native 48K encoding, but converts it to a WAV file. When converting
to a WAV format, the program can be changed to mono from stereo or dual channel from mono or
left as the original format using the “Output channels.” Some Cart Chunk options can also be used or
manipulated.
wav44100 converts the program to WAV at 44.1K. This takes less time, but it also allows changing the
“output channels.” The Cart Chunk data can only be retained and left unchanged or cleared.
wav44100hq also converts the MP2 format to WAV, but it takes longer due the calculations done during
on the conversion. The “output channels” can be changed and the Cart Chunk data can only be
retained and left unchanged or cleared.
Revision 22 – Amb-OS User Interface Rev. 19

© 2014
wav44100 Scot SS32 converts the MP2 program to a WAV format compatible with some Scott Studios®
automation systems by inserting the Scott Chunk header. These Scott Studios® systems only take a
44.1K WAV formatted program, but the other WAV options, “output channels,” “normalize” and
“pre-silence” can be modified.
NOTE
The Cart Chunk options cannot be used to keep a program compatible with the
Scott Chunk header format.
The Amb-OS User Interface takes the program name from the program’s default Cart Chunk
information. The Amb-OS User Interface takes the air date in the MP2 program’s Cart Chunk for the
Scott Chunk start date and the end date is set to “never end.”
The Scott Chunk cut number comes from the “local pattern” in the “rename files” settings. To insure
a proper cut number, the renamed file should be SP####. The Amb-OS User Interface takes the
“####” as the cut number. Any pattern without four digits causes the Amb-OS User Interface to use
9999 as the cut number.
The Amb-OS User Interface records the Scott Chunk information in the “Status Messages” window
and to verify the Scott Chunk data.
Output channels
Allows a WAV formatted program to be stereo, mono or left as the
program’s native setting. The output channel options are disabled when
the output format is MP2. Any WAV conversion enables the output
channel options.
Same as input keeps program in its original format. (default)
Always stereo (2ch) converts a mono program to a dual mono
format and leaves a stereo program unchanged.
Always mono (1ch) mixes a stereo program to one channel and
leaves a mono program unchanged.
NOTE
Programs must be converted to WAV to have the output channels changed.

Transfer Options
Verify mp2 transfer – If programs are not being received or played
correctly, “Verify mp2 transfer” has the Amb-OS User Interface check
program for errors while transferring it regardless of the “output format”
selected. Clear it after the problem has been identified and repaired,
because the verify takes longer to transfer a program.
The Amb-OS User Interface attempts to repair a program three times. After the third attempt fails, the
program is still transferred to have a program with a glitch rather than no program at all.
NOTE
Normally, leave Verify mp2 transfer unchecked, because having this option checked takes
more time to transfer for a program. If the transfer time is not an issue, the option can be
left enabled.
Insert fmt chunk in mp2 – Can only be used with the MP2 format. This
inserts the “bext,” “mext,” and “fmt” chunks in to the Cart Chunk data
fields to create the Broadcast Wave Format (BWF). Some automation
systems import this information instead of converting the file to WAV. The
BWF format needs this option selected, the “special file extension” set as
WAV and the format left as MP2.
Normalize to __% – If converting a program to any of the WAV formats, the overall volume can be
increased or decreased from 10% of dBfs to 100% of dBfs. Only round
numbers can be entered. If entering a non-integer number (90.5), only the
whole number (90) is saved. Amb-OS programs have the volume
normalized at -6 dBfs or 50% of full volume.
Pre-Silence – A pad of silence can be added to a program if it is converted
to a WAV format. To pad the silence to the beginning of the program,
check the “pre-silence” box and select either the “.5” or “1” sec option.
Special file extension
Leaving the “Special file” extension box blank puts the
default extension of the program on the file (“.MP2” or
“.WAV”).
However, the extension of all programs can be changed regardless of the selected format option (MP2 or
WAV). If an automation system requires an extension like
AFE, put AFE in extension box. All programs will have
the extension “AFE” with the name specified in the rename files (filename.AFE).
Automation systems using the Broadcast Wave Format (BWF), need the WAV extension, but left as an MP2
format. Specify the special file extension as “WAV,” select the Insert fmt chunk in MP2 (format the Cart
Chunk as a WAV) and leave the program format as MP2.

XDS Transfers
The Amb-OS User Interface can transfer files from the Moody Broadcasting
XDS system. Check the “Enable XDS” and enter the IP address of the XDS
receiver.
NOTE
To use the Moody Broadcasting XDS system, the XDS receiver needs to be registered
with Moody Broadcasting. Contact Moody Broadcasting for complete details on using
the XDS system.
When using this option, programs listed with an
“*” in the “Rename files” window are the
programs on the XDS system. The programs can
be renamed with the Amb-OS rename variables
and transferred automatically (by enabling
“Miscellaneous transfers”), timed and manually
just like the standard Amb-OS programs.
Some “Tool” options cannot be used with the XDS receiver.
● Play any file
● Get baselist
● Manage file checker
● Manage status indicators
XDS Permission statement
“You may not have permission for all the XDS pgms shown” reports that, while all programs on the XDS
system are displayed, only the programs with the proper permissions will transfer from the local XDS
receiver.
XDS Buttons
XDS Sign-up web page button links to the Moody Broadcasting program permission page. Contact Moody
Broadcasting (http://www.whereyouturn.org/micro_MainPage.aspx?id=64719) for more information on
getting permission for programs.

Cart Chunk Options
This allows a program’s Cart Chunk information to remain unchanged, cleared or modified.
Keep cartchunk keeps or removes Cart Chunk data when transferring.
wav44100 or wav44100hq format:
Checking the box keeps the Cart Chunk data and allows modifying it.
Clearing the box removes the Cart Chunk data.
MP2 or wav48k format:
Automatically checks the box and allows modifying the data.
wav44100 ScotSS32 format:
Disables the Cart Chunk options.
Options with the “#” are exclusive of the other options.
NOTE
Clearing the “Cart chunk” box disables all other Cart Chunk
options.
WARNING
Using the wav44100 or wav44100hq with the keep charchunk
selected will enable on of the cutID options. Select the
appropriate option to insure proper program transfers.
#
cutID clear (for A.V.) clears the Cut ID field in the Cart Chunk data. Some older Audio Vault® systems
need this option selected. The rest of the Cart Chunk data remains unchanged.
#
cutID from amb-os name uses the first nine letters of Amb-OS program name as the cutID when
transferred from AMR-100. If the files has multiple parts the part number is added to the cutID as
“_xx” (_01 for part one, _02 for part two, etc). The “Rename files” windows displays the Amb-OS
program name. The program names are explained in the “Appendix.”
#
cutID is lcl filename uses the name entered in the “Rename files” section for
the program’s Cut ID field in the Cart Chunk data.
#
Lcl filename is CAT+cutID uses the name entered in the “Rename files”
section to fill the category and cutid fields. The first three letters of the name
are put in the category field, and the rest is put in the cutid field. For
example, using “PGM92132” puts “PGM” in the category field and “92132”
in the cut id field. Selecting CAT+cutID option puts a reminder on the
“Renaming files.” Amb-OS recommends entering the program name in the “Rename files” page
before selecting this option.
#
Default cutID leaves the cutID field in the Cart Chunk unchanged.
5-day min expire date prevents files from being deleted until they are at least five days past their air
date. The Amb-OS system normally deletes a file two days after the air date.
Start date = xfer date sets the Cart Chunk start date to the date the program transfers to your local disk.
Some automation systems will not play a program before the date listed in the Cart Chunk data. This
option allows those automation system to play the program early. This can happen with a program
playing on Saturday with a Sunday date.

Backup and Notifications Settings
Do not backup to FTP disables the Amb-OS User Interface from doing
the weekly backup of file settings to the Amb-OS ftp site. Leave this
option unchecked to protect the system from losing settings in the
event of a system failure as long as the computer running the Amb-OS
User Interface has an Internet connection.
Do not send email prevents the Amb-OS User Interface from sending
emails requested by Amb-OS technicians for troubleshooting purposes. Allowing emails to be sent
helps Amb-OS technicians resolve issues faster. Leave this option unchecked unless the computer
running the Amb-OS User Interface does not have an Internet connection.
Email failed gets checked automatically if the Amb-OS User Interface failed to send emails. The AmbOS User Interface will not attempt to send any more emails with this box checked. After correcting
the problem, clear the box to allow the Amb-OS User Interface to resume sending emails.
Daily dest dir cleanup removes programs from the destination directory if the program no longer exists
on the AMR-100. It helps prevent the destination directory from becoming filled, which can prevent
programs from transferring. The destination directory can be cleaned manually by using the
“Cleanup dest folder” in the “Tools” menu.
Temp folder
When converting programs from MP2 to WAV, the Amb-OS User Interface needs a location for the
temporary files used in the conversion process. This option directs the Amb-OS User Interface to a specific
directory. If left empty, the Amb-OS User Interface uses the default
Windows® temporary file location. Pick a location that has several
gigabytes of space to insure there is enough room to do conversions. If
the drive does not have the space, conversions will fail and programs
may not be transferred.
Select a directory by clicking on the “Browse” button to open dialog
box. To create a new folder, use the “Make New Folder” button enter the
name of the new directory.
WARNING
If you pick a network drive, be sure the destination computer is always on
and the drive is always available to prevent conversions from failing.
Save/Cancel
Click on Save to keep the settings and Cancel to ignore any changes. Either option exits.
Clicking on the close window “X” has the same effect as clicking on the Cancel button.
WARNING
Selecting “Cancel” discards changes and revert to the previous settings.

Top Menu Descriptions
Rename Files
The programs on the AMR-100 have names that include the date of the file. This utility programs to get
custom names when transferred. Programs can also be scheduled to transfer at a specific time.
Headings
Program long name: This is the name of the program used by the provider of the program.
Rcvr pattern: This is first nine characters of the Amb-OS name of the program on the AMR-100 receiver.
The entire file name description is in the “Program Naming Convention” section in the Appendix.
All the programs the Program Listing section in the Appendix .
Local pattern: The name the program will have after transferring. Without a pattern, the program will
transfer with the Amb-OS system name.
Xfer Time [day]: Defines when a program is transferred; both by both the time and day relative to the air
date of the program. Without a time in the “Xfer time [day],” the program needs to be transferred
manually, unless the “Miscellaneous Transfer” box is checked to transfer it automatically.
Make changes retroactive: Checking this applies changes to programs in the queue (arrived, but not
transferred). Without checking the box, any changes made will be applied to new programs arriving
after the changes were made.
Save/Cancel: Saves the changes and “Cancel” reverts to the previous settings.
Help: Shows you the options for renaming and transferring.

Filename is CAT+cutID Message
The message “First 3 letters of lcl pattern will be used cartchunk Category” when the option is checked in
the “System info.”
Thus in the local pattern line, BTB1225 would have “BTB” in the category field and “1225” in the cut ID
field of the cart chunk data. The filename on the local computer would be BTTB1225.
General information about local patterns and transfer times
If using the same name for a program everyday, timed transfers protects the current day’s program by
controlling when the new program is transferred. Timed transfers can prevent the next day’s program
overwriting the current day’s program if it arrives before current day’s program airs.
WARNING
Using the same name for a program everyday could result in the current
day's program being overwritten by a new program if no transfer time is
entered.
Programs are transferred after being completely being received so no partial programs get transferred. If a
file arrives less than 24 hours after the scheduled transfer time, it will be transferred as soon as it arrives.
WARNING
If the AMR-100 is not attached to the Internet and data packets are missed,
the missing packets cannot be received from the uplink server and the file
will not transfer. Contact Amb-OS (877-262-6728) to have it retransmitted.

Local Pattern
To change the name of a program, click in the box next to the program to change and enter the name to use
when transferring. To change the name of the “Bible Minute” to “BTB-Min,” enter “BTB-Min” in the local
pattern.
NOTE
Without a rename pattern, the program will keep the Amb-OS system name.
Options
Directory changes:
Programs can be put in different directories by putting a directory name in front of the program name in the
“Local pattern.” Without specifying a directory, the directory will be the destination directory. A different
directory, sub-directory, drive or computer can be used.
Examples
Parameters
destination directory = “D:\ambos\files” (D: is the default drive)
BTTB = a directory, but it can be any directory name
Bible-Min = the local pattern, but it can be any pattern including variables
Local pattern
Result – program is put in:
Bible-Min
D:\ambos\files
BTTB\Bible-Min
D:\ambos\files\BTTB
D:\BTTB
D:\BTTB
\Bible-Min
D:\
E:\BTTB\Bible-Min
E:\BTTB
\\ambos\BTTB\Bible-Min
Computer named “ambos” in \BTTB
If the specified directory does not exist,
the Amb-OS User Interface reports a
system error 03 (“The system cannot find
the path specified”) in the “Activity log.”
WARNING
The directory specified in the local pattern must exist or the Amb-OS User
Interface will not be able to transfer the file.

Rename Variables:
The variables used in renaming files allow customized file names to correspond to days, dates or parts. The
variables can go anywhere in the local pattern (before, after and in the middle). The options are listed below.
Except for multiple part file options, the variables can be used with FTP transfer local file name.
WARNING
Do not use a file extension in the local pattern box. If you do not want the
default extension, change it in the “file output extension” option.
Amb-OS program name: FOFT_ODY5_02-18-14_01-03.MP2
Variable
Meaning
x
Do not transfer the program
%m
The two digit month will be added to the file name: “02”
%d
The two digit day will be added to the file name: “18”
%y
The year of the air date in YY format will be added to the file name: “14”
%w
The day of the week in two letter format will be added to the file name: “Tu”
%3
The day of the week in three letter format would be added to the file name: “Tue”
%n
The numerical day of the week beginning with 1
(Sun. = 1, Mon. = 2... Sat. = 7) would be added to the file name
%z
The numerical day of the week beginning with 0
(Sun. = 0, Mon. = 1, Tue. = 2... Sat. = 6) would be added to the file name
%j
The Julian date or the number of the day of the year.
An air date of 01-01-14: adds “001” to the file name
An air date of 12-31-14: adds “365” to the file name
An air date of 12-31-16: adds “366” to the file name (Leap Year)
Multiple Part Programs
(without either option, the program is transferred as one file)
%p
the part number of the program with two digits
Part one has “01” added to the file name
Part two has “02” added to the file name, etc.
A single part file has nothing added to the file name
%1
The part number of the program with a single digit
Part one has “1” added to the file name
Part two has “2” added to the file name, etc.
A single part file has nothing added to the file name
Multiple variables can be used for the same file and can have separators between them.
%m-%d_%p would have 02-18_01 in the name of the file.
The program will either have the normal format extension – WAV for wave files and MP2 for MP2 files.
However, if a custom extension was specified, then the program will have that extension when it is
transferred. The “FTP transfer” cannot change the MP3 extension regardless of the custom extension.

If “CutID is lcl filename” is checked in the “System info” then the entered program name is used as the
Cart Chunk cutID. If the option “lcl filename is CAT+cutID” is checked in the “system info,” then the first
three characters of the filename pattern is put into the Cart Chunk data as the category and the remaining
characters are put in as the cut ID.
Xfer Time [day]
General Information
The “Xfer time [day]” dictates the program transfer time in 24 hour format (00:00 – 23:59) and, optionally,
a day offset to determine the day the program will be transferred in relative to the air date. Leaving the
“Xfer time [day]” field blank means programs have to be transferred manually unless the “Enable misc
transfers” box is checked.
Scheduling a program transfers
Transfer times protect programs from being overwritten if same program name is used in the “rename
pattern.” For example, if using “IFL-Daily” for all programs and the new program arrives at 8:00 am and the
program airs at 9:00 am, that program could be replaced when the new program arrives. By putting in a
transfer time after the program finishes airing (9:30 am or later) avoids this problem.
The Amb-OS User Interface automatically transfers a program if the program arrives less than 24 hours after
the scheduled transfer time. A program arriving at 11:00 pm with a scheduled transfer at 8:00 pm will be
automatically transferred. A program arriving later than 8:00 pm a day after the scheduled transfer would
have to be transferred manually.
WARNING
Scheduling transfers before programs are successfully received can result
in unpredictable results.
Revision 22 – Amb-OS User Interface Rev. 19
25
© 2014
Amb-OS program transmission times listed in the “Amb-OS Program Listing” table in the “Appendix” are
the queue times of the program. Program transmission times can be delayed from the queue times based on
the number programs scheduled for transfer. Additionally the “Amb-OS Program Listing” table also lists the
number of days in advance of the air date the Amb-OS system sends the program.
Time Parameters
Time should be entered as HH:MM in 24 hour format without the seconds. Use 03:00 for 3:00 AM and
15:00 for 3:00 PM. Times range from 00:00 (the morning of the current day) to 23:59 (one minute before
midnight). Entering 11:00 would transfer the file at 11 AM local PC time.
Time must be entered with only the hour and minutes. Entering
seconds with the time will create and error.
WARNING
Entering the seconds (11:15:20) results in an
error.
Programs arriving less than 24 hours after the scheduled transfer time will be automatically transferred after
the AMR-100 has successfully received the program. Programs arriving more than 24 hours after the
scheduled transfer time will have to be transferred manually.
Day Offset Parameters
The day offset is the number of days before (-1, -2) or after (+1 or 1, +2) the air date of the program to
transfer. Without a day offset specified, the “After 12P (noon) Rule” applies to the transfer. Times before
12:00 PM (noon) transfers the program on its air date. Schedules on or after 12:00 PM (noon) transfers the
next day’s program assuming the program was successfully received.
The day offset must be entered with a transfer time. “11:00 -1” would transfer the file at 11:00 AM local PC
time one day before the air date.
WARNING
The day offset parameter must be entered with a transfer time.
Day offset description for transfers
Day offset description
-2 = two days before the air date of the program
-1 = the day before the air date of the program (prefeed)
0 = current day
1 or +1 = the day after the air date of the program
2 or +2 = 2 days after the air date of the program
WARNING
The day offset parameter should not be greater than the number of days in
advance a program is sent from the Amb-OS satellite system to avoid
missing a scheduled transfer by more than 24 hours.
Revision 22 – Amb-OS User Interface Rev. 19
26
© 2014
Examples of day offset
Times with a day offset specified – nullifies the “After 12 PM (noon) rule”
06:00 -1 = Transfers a day before the air date
15:00 0 = Transfers the same day’s file at 3 pm even though the transfer is scheduled after noon.
Times with no day offset specified – the “After 12 PM (noon) rule” applies
06:00 = Transfers the same day’s program (same as using 0 as the day offset)
15:00 = Transfers the next day’s program (same as using -1 as the day offset)
File transmission time vs. queue time
When considering a scheduled time, check the program’s queue time. Programs normally get sent at the
queue time listed in the program table; however, server traffic may delay the actual satellite transmission
time. The program table lists queue times in Eastern Time. Avoid transfer errors by scheduling transfers an
hour after the queue time.
WARNING
The queue time may not be the transmission time. The queue time is the
scheduled transmission time. The actual transmission time will be later if a
previously scheduled program has not finished transmitting at the queue
time. The program will be sent immediately after the previous program(s)
have completed transmitting.
Because the Amb-OS satellite system sends programs
sequentially, the next program in the queue cannot be
sent until the previous program has finished transmitting.
While the Amb-OS queue schedule has been designed to
space programs to avoid delays in program transmission;
however, programs can still be delayed. Check the actual arrival time of program in the activity log file to
verify the actual transfer time.
The program table at the end of this manual in the Appendix lists programs with their queue time. The most
current table is online at http://www.amb-os/programs.

Examples of Rename files
This section assumes that the output format will be MP2 and not converted to a WAV file. With the output
format selected as a WAV, everything will be the same but the files will a wav file and have the WAV
extension when transferred unless a special file extension was used.
The screen shot above illustrates the following actions:
MM-DD-YY is the air date of the program.
CUST_TEST and CUST_PDVD will not be transferred, because of the “x” in the local pattern.
AGLX_DLD5 will be transferred on its air date, because no day offset is entered, so it follows the “After
12 PM (noon) rule.” It will be named “DLDL-15.MP2” if the air date is on the fifteenth of the
month. It will also be put in the “\AMB-OS” directory on the root drive of the destination directory.
AGLX_DLPM will be transferred at midnight local time two days before the air date with the default
Amb-OS system file name (AGLX_DLPM_MM-DD-YY_01-01.MP2).
AIGM_AKH5 will be transferred at 5:00 AM on the air date of the program with the default Amb-OS
system file name (AIGM_AKH5_ MM-DD-YY_01-01.MP2).
BTTB_BTB1 will be transferred at 11:00 AM local time as “BTTB-Wkd.MP2” five days before the air
date. If the program arrives only three days before the air date, the program will have to be manually
transferred, because it would arrive more than 24 hours after the scheduled transfer time.
BTTB_BTB5 will be transferred as “BTTB1225.MP2” at 3:00 PM Local PC time and it will transfer the
same day’s program, because of the “-0” parameter bypassing the “After 12 PM (noon) rule.”
BTTB_TBM5 will be transferred at 3:00 AM local time as “BTB-Min-11.MP2” if the air date is the
eleventh of the month.

Multiple Part Files
A multi-part file has the number of parts after the “program long name.” Using %p or %1 in the local
pattern puts the part number in the local name.
%p – Program-Name-01, Program-Name-02, Program-Name-03, etc.
%1 – Program-Name-1, Program-Name, Program-Name-3, etc.
The “-” has to put in the local pattern: Program-Name-%p or Program-Name-%1.
No designation – Program-Name combines all the parts and transfers it as a single program.
Example (Love worth Finding Comm -3 parts)
Local Pattern – LWF-Daily-%p
Xfer time [day] – 02:00 -2
It will be transferred at 2:00 AM local time, two days in advance and as three parts.
First part: LWF-Daily-01.MP2
Second part: LWF-Daily-02.MP2
Third part: LWF-Daily-03.MP2
Just having “LWF-Daily” in the local pattern (no %p or %1), it will be transferred as a single program.
LWF-Daily.MP2
Making changes retroactive
Checking this box applies the rename pattern
changes to any files currently on the AMR-100,
but have not been transferred. Leaving the box
unchecked will only apply the new name to
programs received later.

Playlist Editor
General Description
This tool creates a playlist for the AMR-100 receiver to play programs out of audio ports for on air or
recording. Relay closures can be assigned to programs (see the AMR-100 Installation manual) for playback
to communicate with an automation system.
Check the queue time for programs to make sure programs are not scheduled before being received. The
program table at the end of this manual in the “Appendix” lists programs with their queue time. The most
current table is online at http://www.amb-os/programs. Transmission times may be different than the queue
time (file transmission versus queue time).
WARNING
The queue time may not be the transmission time. The queue time is the
scheduled transmission time. The actual transmission time will be later if a
previously scheduled program has not finished transmitting at the queue
time. The program will be sent immediately after the previous program(s)
have completed transmitting.
Triggers
At this time, triggers cannot be entered into the playlist by the Amb-OS User Interface. To use triggers,
create a playlist with the Amb-OS User Interface playlist editor, write the playlist to a local drive and then
edit the playlist with a plain text editor (Notepad®) or with the Stand-alone Playlist Editor (http://www.ambos.com/pdfs/playlisted-rev005.zip). The User Interface (UI) Software Playlist Manual (available at
http://www.amb-os.com/support.html) explains the playlist commands in greater detail.
The playlist editor uses the receiver specified in “System Info” section and automatically pulls in the playlist
on the AMR-100 for editing. The Amb-OS User Interface saves it back to the AMR-100.
WARNING
After editing the playlist outside of the Amb-OS User Interface playlist
editor, do not bring the playlist back into the Amb-OS User Interface,
because it can make unwanted changes.

The buttons
The first time the playlist editor opens no programs appear in the playlist window, but all available programs
on the AMR-100 are listed in left window. Programs are listed in the “wild card” format, which uses “##-####” in the filename in place of the air date as specified in the Amb-OS system naming convention. The
“wild card” files allows programs to be played back automatically on the air date of the program without
having to change the playlist everyday. Optionally, you can specify a single date. See the Amb-OS system
naming convention section in the “Appendix.”
General files/List individual files: All available programs can be listed or by the actual Amb-OS System
name on the AMR-100.
General files lists all available programs
using the “wild card” (##-##-##) in place
of the date.
Individual files lists only the programs on
the AMR-100 with with the air dates (0527-14) in the program name
Write playlist to disk: Saves the playlist to a file on a computer for archiving, backup or editing.
Read playlist into editor: Loads a playlist into the editor from a computer for editing. It can then be saved
to the AMR-100, but it will overwrite the playlist on the AMR-100.
Save entry: Saves the entry to the AMR-100. If this button is not clicked, the changes to the playlist will not
be saved to the AMR-100.
Delete entry: Removes an entry. Highlight the desired program and click on “Delete entry.”
Attenuation: This reduces the audio level of programs as they are played. The affects all programs played
from the AMR-100 and not just the entry being edited.
Save Playlist: Click this button to save the playlist to the receiver. The playlist can be saved to a local disk
and not the AMR-100.
Cancel: Used to discard changes made to the playlist.
Help: This brings up the help menu.
NOTE
The attenuation settings affects all programs played from the AMR-100’s
audio ports and not just the program being edited.

weekday box. To play a program on Saturday and Sunday, each one of those must be selected.
After saving the entry, the playlist editor shows which days a program will play by putting the first letter
of the day at the beginning of the entry.
“-mtwtf-” – Program airs weekdays:
“-m-w-f-” – Program airs Mon., Wed. and Fri.
“------s” – Program airs Saturday
“s-----s” – Program airs Saturday and Sunday
“*” – Program has no time as part of a multiple part program
Playback Time: This sets the playback time of the program. It must be entered in
24 hour format and can be down to the second. 05:00:00 airs at 5:00 A and
17:00:00 airs at 5:00 P. A time must be entered for each program. Only the first part of multiple part
programs needs a time if all the parts are to play consecutively without a break. See “Playing Multiple
Part Files.” To play the same program multiple times, see “Multiple Airings.”
If a program does not have time, it will be treated as the next part of the previous program. Scheduling
“Grace to You” at 11:30 and then putting in “Insight for Living” after that without a time, would play
“Grace to You” at 11:30 and then “Insight for Living” immediately afterward without a break.
WARNING
Without a playback time for subsequent programs in the playlist, the first
program plays at the specified time and following program(s) play right
after each other without a break as a multiple part program.
Day offset: Programs can be played before (“+#”), on (“0”) or after (“-#”) the air date.
Playlist day offset
1 or +1 plays the program one day before the air date (a prefeed).
0 plays the program on the air date.
-1 plays the program 1 day after the air date (playing a file on Sunday that has a Saturday air date).
WARNING
The playlist day offset is opposite from the renaming files day offset.
(See the “Playlist Day offset” section in the “Appendix.”)
NOTE
Playlists do not follow the “After 12PM (noon) Rule.” Without a day offset,
the AMR-100 will play the current day’s program regardless of the
scheduled time.

Audio Port: This selects the audio port to use for playback. The AMR-100 has two ports and can play back
in either stereo or mono.
WARNING
Leaving the Port blank (the default when starting to edit an entry) puts in
an erroneous port and no program will play.
Port options:
Port1-ST: Plays out the left and right of Port 1 – a mono program plays out L and R
Port1-L: Plays out the left side of Port 1 only in mono – a stereo program is mixed
Port1-R: Plays out the right side of Port 1 only in mono – a stereo program is mixed
Port2-ST: Plays out the left and right of Port 2 – a mono program plays out L and R
Port2-L Plays out the left side of Port 2 only in mono – a stereo program is mixed
Port2-R Plays out the right side of Port 2 only in mono – a stereo program is mixed
Maximum number of programs that can be played:
2 programs: Port 1 in stereo and port 2 in stereo
3 programs: Port 1 in stereo and port 2 playing a mono feed on the left and the right channels
3 programs: Port 1 playing a mono feed on the left and the right channels and port 2 in stereo
4 programs: Both ports playing separate mono feeds on the left and right channels
For a full description of the audio ports and limitations see the AMR-100 Installation manual.
Relays: This assigns a relay and its action to a program. A relay can be closed for the entire length of the
program or it can be pulsed (close for one second and then open) at either the beginning OR the end of a
program. The Amb-OS User Interface playlist editor cannot put in multiple relay actions for the same
entry. Use the Stand-alone Playlist Editor to put in multiple relay actions for a single program entry.
Download the Stand-alone Playlist Editor (http://www.amb-os.com/pdfs/playlisted-rev005.zip) from
http://www.amb-os.com/support.html.
The drop down menu allows choosing the relay and action. Remember, relays 5 and 6 are normally used
for time sync and alarms. Unless you have disabled those on your AMR-100 receiver, do NOT choose
those relays. See the AMR-100 User Manual available from http://www.amb-os.com/support.html to
enable to disable relays 5 and 6 from their default function.
The relay options are (“X” = the relay number):
relay: No relay activity for that file
X-close: close the relay for the entire length of the program and open it at the end of the program
X-start: pulse the relay at the beginning of the program
X-end: pulse the relay at the end of the program
Attenuation: Sets the amount of attenuation (in dB) for all programs during playback. Enter “0” (full
volume) to “90” (effectively silences the output) in integers. This only effects programs played out of
the audio ports and it does not effect the transferred programs. No amplification can be made, because
the gain on the receiver defaults to full volume.
Example: “6” drops the volume by 6 dB.
NOTE
Attenuation parameters changes all programs and it cannot be used for
individual program playback.

Save Entry: After completing changes for each program, click on “Save entry” or the changes will be lost.
WARNING
Click on “Save entry” after every program or the changes will be lost.
Delete Entry: To remove a program from the playlist, highlight the entry to delete and press “Delete entry.”
A deleted entry cannot be recovered. While, the “Cancel” button can be clicked and the playlist
reloaded, that would also remove any previous changes.
WARNING
“Delete entry” is immediate and no confirmation is asked.
Multiple Airings
Same day airings (different times)
Airing a program multiple times during the day, requires and entry for each time airing. Select the program
for the first airing and modify the playback parameters and select Save entry. Then double click on the same
program to insert it into the playlist again and put in the new air time. The following illustration shows the
program set to play at two different times.
Different day airings (same times)
Prefeeds for daily programs may have to account for the weekend. Tuesday’s – Friday’s programs come on
Monday – Thursday, but Monday’s program has to come on Friday or three days early. Even though the
feeds play at the same time, the playlist needs two entries to account for the different day offsets. Monday’s
prefeed on Friday plays back three days early to skip Saturday and Sunday. The other prefeeds playback one
day in advance. The same program has the same time, but two different day offsets.
The following example shows the same program at the same time with different day offsets.
Different days to play (M-Th & F only)
1 day offset
3 day offset
WARNING
Not all programs feed enough days in advance to have a three day offset.
Check the feed days in the Amb-OS program table in the “Appendix.”

Playlist Example
(Line numbers to the left and highlights are for illustrative purposes only)
Entry #1: Plays the current day’s Back to the Bible every weekday at 05:30:00 in stereo and pulses relay #1
at the start of the program.
Entry #2: Replays the current day’s Back to the Bible every weekday at 18:30:00 in stereo and pulses relay
#1 at the start of the program.
Entries #3-5: Plays the multiple parts of Adventures in Odyssey beginning at 09:00:00 every Sunday in
stereo out of port two and only part three pulses relay #2 when all three segments have finished playing.
The day offset is “-1” for all segments, because the air date for the program is a Saturday and airing the
program on Sunday means each one airs a day later.
Entry #6: Plays Washington Watch for recording two days early at 23:15:00 for recording in mono out of
port 1-left channel. Relay #1 stays closes for the entire program playback.
Entries #7-11: Plays each segment of Everyday Relationships at a fixed time Monday through Friday and
pulsing relay #2 at the end of each segment.
Segment 1 (part 1 of 10) plays at 17:06 and pulses relay #2 at the end of the program
Segment 2 (part 3 of 10) plays at 17:21 and pulses relay #2 at the end of the program
Segment 3 (part 5 of 10) plays at 17:34 and pulses relay #2 at the end of the program
Segment 4 (part 7 of 10) plays at 17:44 and pulses relay #2 at the end of the program
Segment 5 (part 9 of 10) plays at 17:55 and pulses relay #2 at the end of the program
Entries #12, 13: Plays a prefeed of Insight for Living at 20:15:00 one day early on Monday through
Thursday and three days early on Friday to account for the weekend. Each program pulses relay #1 at
the end of the program.
WARNING
Day offsets in this example are used for illustrative purposes only. Verify
the feed days in the Amb-OS program table in the “Appendix.”

Rearranging Airings
For clarity or to move multiple part programs together, click on desired entry to move and then drag it to a
new position. After highlighting the desired entry and starting to drag that entry, an arrow appears to the left
of the playlist window showing where the entry will be placed after releasing the mouse button.
Arrow
Highlighted entry
This allows entries to organized by day (weekdays vs. weekends), by time or something else. By being able
to rearrange entries, added events can be moved to keep them organized.
The order of the playback times does not matter, except for playing back multiple part programs in the
correct order. Programs scheduled for 13:00:00 and 08:00:00 can be put in any order and they will still play
at their scheduled times.
Revision 22 – Amb-OS User Interface Rev. 19

Playing Multiple Part Files
To play a multiple part file as one file, put in the first part and give it a time then add the other parts without
putting in times. The first part plays at specified time and the other parts will play in sequence after each
part finishes. The playlist editor remembers the settings for previous entry (day offset, audio port and relay,
but not the time) to help keep subsequent parts of a program consistent.
WARNING
The parts will play in the order they are listed. The first part, with the time,
has to be first, the second part has to be second and the third part has to
be third and so forth.
To close a relay at the end of the entire program, add the relay closure for the last segment and not for the
previous segments.
WARNING
To make sure a relay closes on the last segment, be sure to not have a
relay listed for the previous parts. Select “relays” to clear it.
The process is:
1. Double click on the first segment.
2. Enter in a time for it to playback, day offset (defaults to 0) the port and, if wanted, a relay action
3. Click on “Save Entry”
4. Double click on the second segment.
5. Do not put in a time, verify the day offset (defaults to 0) the port and, if wanted, a relay action
6. Click on “Save Entry”
7. Double click on the third segment.
8. Do not put in a time, verify the day offset (defaults to 0) the port and, if wanted, a relay action
9. Click on “Save Entry”
The second set of programs (IFLM_PAT1) at 15:00, 15:30 and 16:00 (lines are for illustrative purposes
only) shows recording multiple part programs as individual segments. Playing a multiple part program as
individual segments from the AMR-100 and inserting spots between the segments, can be problematic if the
segments have different lengths each day. If the segments vary from day to day, the playlist would have to
be changed each day the program airs. To avoid that frustration, record the segments at fixed times and have
the automation system put in the spots between the segments.

Creating a one time playback
To play a program once on a specific day, change the window to list actual files by clicking on List
individual files. That changes the listing to show files with their air dates.
Use the same process as creating a playlist with the “wild card” dates. Double click on the program to air,
then highlight it in the “Playlist” window and enter the time and other information. Then click on “Save
entry” and that file will only play once on the date of the file. A day offset of “+1” plays it on 12/22 and “-1”
plays it on 12/20. This can be useful for one time holiday programs.
The entry will stay in the playlist until manually deleted. Of course, the program will never play again,
because the date has passed and will never repeat.
Saving the playlist
Save Playlist
After finishing the playlist, click on “Save playlist” and the playlist will be saved to the AMR-100 and it exit
the playlist function.
This only saves the playlist to the AMR-100 receiver and not to another computer. Use the “Write playlist to
disk” to save a backup playlist.
Cancel
Pressing “Cancel” or the close window “X” in the upper right of the
playlist editor window after making changes opens a confirmation
window asking whether or not to save the playlist. Pressing “No” will
discard the changes. Pressing “Yes” saves the changes to the AMR100, but not to another computer.

Write playlist to disk
To save the playlist to a local computer, click on Write playlist to disk.
Select a folder and specify a name of the playlist in the “Save playlist
as...” dialog box.
The file is stored as a standard text file and can be edited using a text editor or the “Stand alone playlist
editor.” The playlist manual and the “Stand-alone Playlist Editor” are available at http://www.ambos.com/support.html. The syntax and construction of a playlist can very involved, so always save a copy of
the playlist that has not been modified.
Saving the playlist to a disk can be useful to work on a playlist and check it before saving it to the AMR100. If time does not permit making all the changes, saving the playlist to a disk and not saving it the AMR100, allows editing a playlist without changing the operation of the AMR-100 until the playlist is complete.
Click on Cancel after saving the playlist to a computer to exit without saving the playlist to the AMR-100.
After finishing the changes, keep a copy of the playlist on a computer by clicking on “Write playlist to disk”
and then pick a directory and file name. After that, click on Save playlist to save the playlist on the AMR100.
WARNING
Saving the playlist to a disk does not save it to the AMR-100. You must
click on “Save playlist” to save the playlist to the AMR-100.

Explore Log Files
The Amb-OS User Interface
automatically creates a log file
(system and ftp) for each month. The
Amb-OS User Interface displays the
current activity log file above the
activity window.
Click on “Explore
log files” to open up
the file open dialog
window.
Double click on the
desired log file or
highlight it and press
[Enter] to open the

The log files are text files and the Amb-OS User
Interface opens the files with Windows Notepad®
allowing the file saved in another location or to be
copied and pasted into an email for Amb-OS support
technicians.
The log file messages are listed in the “Appendix.”
When restarting the Amb-OS User Interface, the
current month’s log file gets appended rather than
having a new log file created. This prevents erasing the previously captured log for the month.
NOTE
The “rcvg” (receiving a program) items are removed, because the activity
log records “rcvd” (received program) making “rcvg” redundant.

updated rename. If a program has been transferred and then the rename
pattern is changed, this window shows that change. This becomes useful if
a new naming convention is implemented and previously transferred
programs need the new names.
WARNING
If “Make changes retroactive” in the “Rename files” window is checked, the
file names are changed immediately they cannot be selectively renamed with
the “Refresh renames.”
Total Refresh
The Amb-OS User interface tracks programs and their status (transferred or
not) in memory to prevent re-transferring programs.
“Total refresh” clears and rebuilds the transfer log. The Amb-OS User
Interface opens a warning window indicating programs may be retransferred. With a lot of programs, this can take some time to complete.

Get baselist
The Amb-OS system sends a file to each AMR-100 containing the complete
list of approved programs for the AMR-100. This prevents unnecessary
programs from filling up the AMR-100's hard drive. The Amb-OS User
Interface automatically requests a baselist when needed, this manually
requests the Amb-OS system to send a baselist for the AMR-100.
Use this to verify requested programs are being sent to the AMR-100.
Depending on programs being transmitted by the Amb-OS system, it could
take as long as five minutes for the satellite AMR-100 receiver and up to 25
minutes for the Internet AMR-100I receiver.
NOTE
XDS Limitation: The Amb-OS system does not send
program permissions to the XDS receiver; therefore,
no baselist exists to be retrieved by Amb-OS system.
Check an mp2 file
If a problem prevents a program from transferring, the Amb-OS User
Interface can check the MP2 file on the AMR-100. This checks the integrity
of a program on the AMR-100 receiver and it also displays the Cart Chunk
information for the program.
The window displays programs by the Amb-OS system name. The Amb-OS
User Interface checks each frame of the MP2 file on the AMR-100 for any
errors. The information is displayed in the “Status Message” Window at the
bottom of the main Amb-OS User Interface screen.
Highlight the program to be checked
and click on Check file. Only one
program can be checked at a time.
NOTE
Use the scroll bar in the Status Message” window to view the MP2 file
information.

Manage status indicators
The status indicators in the main Amb-OS User Interface window can be
customized for warnings and notifications.
EbNo
Alerts are sent to the members in the email notification list when the EbNo
drops to or below the notification settings.
EbNo, a relative indication of signal strength, should not vary significantly
under normal circumstances. If the EbNo drops significantly, a problem
could exist in the RF chain and the local support personnel can be notified
through email when the signal strength drops below the desired level.
AMR-100I Limitation: Because the AMR-100I does not use RF, this
setting will not have any effect on the Amb-OS User Interface
notifications.
XDS Limitation: The Amb-OS User Interface cannot access the XDS receiver statistics, therefore the
notifications do not reflect the RF on the XDS receiver.
The AMR-100 has a strong RF section and can receive programs even with very low EbNo readings;
however, other receivers using the same signal may not be able to function. If the EbNo drops significantly,
the AMR-100 may still receive programs; however, it can indicate an issue with the RF chain.
Red if below: The EbNo status indicator changes to red if
the EbNo reported by the AMR-100 receiver drops
below the assigned number. Use this number as the
lowest useable EbNo RF number.
Set the number low enough to prevent false
notifications, but high enough to generate an alert for a
failure or a situation that needs attention. The Amb-OS
User Interface sets the default to 3 dB.
Yellow if below: The EbNo status indicator changes to
yellow if the EbNo reported by the AMR-100 receiver
drops below the assigned number. Use this number as a
warning that the RF signal is degrading, but still
useable.
Set the number low enough to prevent false
notifications, but high enough to generate notifications
of degrading signals. The Amb-OS User Interface sets
the default to 5.
Yellow if drops from high: The EbNo status indicator
changes to yellow if the EbNo drops from the normal
high reading.
Set the number to account for normal fluctuations of RF levels. If the EbNo normally runs around 10 dB
± 2 dB (8-12), then set the number at 3 so it sets the indicator when the EbNo drops below 8 or above
12. The Amb-OS User Interface sets the default at 2.

Disk Free Space
Alerts are sent to the members in the “email email
notification” list when disk space becomes critical
based on the settings. With size too small, programs
may not be transferred. Normally, the defaults of 5
Gb for critical (red) and 10 Gb for warning (yellow) suffice.
The amount of space necessary for each situation varies with the number of programs transferred and
whether the programs are converted to a WAV file. As a rule of thumb, Amb-OS MP2 programs take
roughly 1 Mb a minute. WAV files take about 10 Mb a minute. A 30 minute MP2 program uses
approximately 30 Mb of space and a WAV file uses approximately 300 Mb. With more than 33 programs
stored on the destination directory, the critical space may need to be increased over the default of 10 Gb.
Archiving programs for a long period requires a larger destination drive. If space gets low, programs may
not transfer. If an error occurs stating a program could be written, check the available disk space on the
destination directory. Consider cleaning up the destination directory function in the tools menu. This deletes
programs no longer on the AMR-100. Programs get automatically deleted from the AMR-100.
NOTE
If the drive space indicator in the Status Indicator area consistently becomes
red or yellow, more drive space may needed or unnecessary files may need
to be deleted to free up space.
Popup Windows
When hovering the mouse over the status indicators
section, a window opens while the mouse is over an
indicator. This option specifies the amount of time that will elapse before the window opens. The longer the
time, the longer the delay to open the window. A “0” setting opens the window open immediately. 1000
milliseconds means leaving the mouse of the indicator for a second before the window opens.
Regardless of what indicator is under the mouse, once the time delay has been met, moving the mouse over
another indicator without leaving the indicator section, the next pop up window comes up immediately.
After moving the mouse to any other area, the delay resets.
Email Notifications
Station personnel can be notified when any of the status
indicators become yellow or red (fall below the limits set
in the manage indicators). An email can also be sent when
the AMR-100 receives bad blocks that could indicate a
faulty RF signal.
Select the items that will generate emails by checking
them. Add email addresses in the email address box. Enter in an address and press [ENTER] then enter in
another address and press [ENTER] until all the addresses have been successfully entered.
If the computer running the Amb-OS User Interface loses the Internet connection, emails can be suspended
until the connection has been repaired. Change the email settings in the system information settings.

RSS
The Amb-OS system uses RSS feeds to notify stations of changes or issues
with programs. While the information can be received by subscribing the
feeds (http://www.amb-os.com/rss.html), the Amb-OS User Interface has
an option to read the RSS feeds.
Clicking on the “RSS feed” option in the “Tools Menu”
opens the feed window.
The message pane at the bottom of the window, shows
the status of the RSS system. Clicking on a message in
the upper pane displays the RSS message in the lower
pane.
Open item’s web page: Opens the RSS feed site with
that feed’s message. Older messages may not be available, because they get deleted from the web page.
Close: Closes the RSS feed window.

Sending Logs to the AMR-100 Receiver or to Amb-OS support email
The upload options, email options and FTP option send log files to either the AMR-100 receiver or the
Amb-OS support email. The “activity log,” “debug file,” “export file,” “FTP export log” and a potentially
corrupted audio programs can be uploaded or emailed. Only use these options when instructed by Amb-OS
support personnel. Uploading files to the AMR-100 receiver goes hand-in-hand with emailing files to the
Amb-OS support personnel.
WARNING
If the computer running the Amb-OS User Interface does not have an
Internet connection, be sure the check the Do not send email option in the
System Information settings.
The mp2check a file (email results) checks a specific program emails the results to Amb-OS support. An
Amb-OS support personnel may ask to have the program emailed to check it for errors. If there is a
suspected file, contact the Amb-OS support personnel by sending a support request to support@amb-os.com
or call the 24-hour support desk at 877AMBOS2U or (877) 262-6728.
To examine an MP2 program on the AMR-100, use the check an mp2 file in the tools menu.
WARNING
Sending the check MP2 file information without being directed by an Amb-OS
support technician creates unneeded emails to Amb-OS support.

An Internet connection is required
When email notifications are enabled in the System Settings or the system
notifications, the computer needs Internet connection. If no connection exists,
the “An Internet connection is required” option becomes enabled.
Backup Files to Ambassador
FTP file to support allows Amb-OS support
personnel to examine a corrupted file to isolate
problems. Like the Upload and Email options, this
should only be done when directed by Amb-OS
support personnel. The options are:
Upload activity to rcvr
Upload debug to rcvr
Upload export to rcvr
Email activity to support
Email debug to support

Update UI
Download and update the Amb-OS User Interface to the latest version or to
different version of the software. It preserves all settings from the current
version. Selecting a version older than the current version will roll back the
Amb-OS User Interface to that version.
Clicking on the “Update UI” option opens a window listing the current version
and all available versions of the Amb-OS User Interface.
•
Click on the desired version to use.
•
Click on “This will update your UI immediately”
A window opens with the message the version is being downloaded. After the version has been downloaded,
the queue will be stopped and the version installed. The message will show a countdown and then display
the “Update successful” message.
The Amb-OS User Interface has been changed to that version (upgraded if newer and downgraded if older)
and the settings have been preserved.
The update windows automatically closes after the successful
version change.
Cancel aborts the
operation.

Recheck name changes
When ministries change the name of their program, the Amb-OS User Interface
can automatically change the Amb-OS program name to the new name for
programs that have not been sent to or transferred from the AMR-100. When
starting the Amb-OS User Interface, a window opens listing the programs that
have pending name changes and the names can be changed immediately or
delayed. However, the rename pattern remains unchanged and has to be done
manually.
Program name changes can be applied to programs that have been transferred
with the old Amb-OS program name. If the local rename pattern was not
changed with the new program name, this can be ignored. If the rename pattern
was changed to reflect the new Amb-OS program name, this options allows
programs to be refreshed with the new rename pattern.
The windows displays:
The new Amb-OS name – This is the new Amb-OS system name of the program.
The transfer method – This is normally “misc” (miscellaneous transfer) so the the program does not get
transferred with the new name before the automation system can be changed to reflect the name.
The old rename of the program – This identifies the old rename pattern to help in finding the old
program in the rename pattern window.
The new rename of the program – This shows the new program name selected.
Click on the programs to change or click on “Select all” to select all of the programs. After selecting the
desired programs, click on “Process selected renames.” To not change any of the programs, click on
“Close.”
NOTE
Programs can have any rename pattern so the old rename pattern can be left
unchanged. This may create confusion when trying to isolate a problem with
a program, but the name does not have to be changed.

FTP
The Am-b-OS User Interface downloads programs with the FTP option and processes them like transferring
programs from the AMR-100 receiver. Most of the same rename options used in transferring programs from
the AMR-100 can be used. The MP2 programs can also have their file extension changed and the Cart
Chunk information can be added, preserved or modified as specified in the System Info.
•
•
WAV programs can have the extension changed and renamed, but they cannot be converted to
another format.
MP3 programs cannot be converted or have the file extension changed, but they can be renamed.
WARNING
The Amb-OS User Interface FTP transfer cannot convert MP3 files and are
transferred without any conversion and retain the MP3 extension.

Edit Site Pane
This pane and the “Save site” button is inactive until after the “Add site” or
“Edit site” buttons are clicked. While data may be entered without clicking
on the “Add site” or “Edit site,” the data cannot be saved.
WARNING
The data in the “Edit site” window cannot be saved
unless “Add site” or “Edit site” activated the pane.
After clicking on “Add site,” the “Save site” window becomes active and the
“port” automatically gets populated with the default port of 21.
Site name: Any name can be entered to easily identify the site. A site name
is required to save the site’s login information.
Host: Enter the URL of the site. While most FTP sites begin with “ftp,”
some may begin with “www” so verify the correct URL name.
WARNING
Do not use the protocol parameter (ftp://) or the site will not work.
User: Enter the user name for the site. Some sites allow an anonymous login. If so, enter “anonymous” as
the name. Many sites require a specific user name and some sites have case sensitive user names.
Contact the ministry to obtain a user name.
Password: Enter the password of the site, which is usually case sensitive. If the user name is “anonymous,”
sometimes this can be blank. If that fails, enter an email address or just
some text with “@” in it (for example, get@in). If a site requires a
specific password, contact the ministry to obtain a password.
Start dir: Most sites automatically start in a directory that has the
downloads visible and this can be left blank. However, some sites hide
directories or have several layers of directories and the start directory can
be used to go directly to the desired location. If so, put in the path of the
directory with the programs; for example, “/radiostation/complete.”
After selecting a directory with the desired programs, the Amb-OS User Interface will not need to be
directed to that program directory and there is no need to wade through a directory tree to find programs.
Port: The default FTP transfer port is 21. Unless a ministry specifies a different port, leave this setting
unchanged.
Save site: After entering the parameters, click on “Save site” to store the settings. The new site will be listed
WARNING
Cliking on “Add site” before “Save site”clears the settings without saving
them and they will have to be entered again.

Before opening a site, the current directory has “Open site” displayed.
Up: Moves up the directory tree after going into sub-directories.
Save as: Allows a highlighted program to be saved immediately.
Any file in the directory can be saved. The format of the original file does not matter. A normal save
dialog box opens to select the directory and the name of the saved file.
NOTE
Programs saved
with the “Save as”
button will not be
converted.
Programs saved with “Save as” will not have any of the parameters in the FTP pattern applied and it will
not do any format conversions. Any name can be used in the “File name” option in the “Save as” dialog
box. Select one file at time, but a new program can be saved before the previous program completes
downloading.
With no program selected, Save as is inactive.
Progress bar: Displays the progress of the saved program.
Local File Name: The name of the local program.
Sub-Directories: Click once on the desired directory to open the
directory. If no files appear in the “Files window,” then only
sub-directories exist. If the directories do not change when a
sub-directory is selected, then no sub-directories exist.

programs or files can be selected for saving and for
automated downloads in the “Edit program pane.”
Use the up and down arrow keys, on right of the window, to
navigate through the program list. Click once on a program or file to add it to the “Edit program pane.”
FTP activity: This shows the current status of the site and if any
errors were encountered. After logging out of or closing a site, the
“FTP activity log” keeps the log for that site until a different site is
opened. Then the activity log is cleared and the log for the current
site is displayed. However, the “Message window” in the main Amb-OS User Interface also logs all
activity and the messages from the previous site remain in that window. Because the “main activity log”
window records all Amb-OS User Interface activity, the messages from the FTP activity get intermixed
with other messages and may be harder to find.
Use the up and down arrow keys, on right of the window, to navigate through the file list.
NOTE
The FTP activity window is cleared when a different site is opened.
NOTE
New programs can be added only when logged into a site.

Edit Program Pane
After selecting a program in the “Status/Navigation pane,” the program comes in the “Edit program pane”
for customizing the name. To have multiple programs from the site, select one program at time, edit the
settings and save each program before selecting the next one.
Path
The selected program in the Status/Navigation pane automatically gets the path field filled. The Amb-OS
User Interface saves this in order to be able to get to the same directory whenever it is scheduled to transfer.
This can be manually edited for changes; however, unless the ministry changes directories regularly that do
not reflect a standard month/day/year, this should not have to be changed. Variables can be used to
automatically change directories if they are based on dates.
WARNING
Deleting the path information will prevent a program from transferring.
Directory Naming Convention
Substitute Variable
For directories with just a year (…program/2014
Substitute yyyy for 2014
For directories with just a two digit month (…program/02)
Substitute mm for 02
For directories with a three letter month (…program/Feb)
Substitute Mmm for Feb
For directories with the full month name (…program/February)
Substitute Mmmm for February
For directories with the quarter (…program/1st)
Substitute Qqq for 1st
For directories with the Spanish three letter month (…program/Feb)
Substitute Eee for Feb
For directories with the Spanish full month name (…program/Febrero)
Substitute Eeee for Febrero
Example
ministry/program/2014/Feb
Substitute …/program/yyyy/Mmm
ministry/program/02February
Substitute …/mmMmmm
If the path seems unclear, contact the ministry for an explanation on how they name directories.
Pattern
This allows using substitute variables in the source name enabling the Amb-OS User Interface to find
programs that change names or to ignore unpredictable elements. This can automatically find a program
with a date in the name without daily intervention.
If left blank or the entered pattern does not match anything, a window pops
up with the option to contact Dave (support@amb-os.com) to add a pattern.
If the name seems unclear, contact the ministry for an explanation on naming
convention.

Schedule
Frequency: Determines how often the Amb-OS User Interface should transfer a program.
The drop-down menu options are:
Same day – Log in on the day of the air date.
Daily+2 – Log in every day and search for programs two days before air
date (ignores weekends – searches for Monday’s program on Thursday and
Tuesday’s program on Friday).
Daily+1 – Log in every day and search for programs one day before air date (ignores
weekends – searches for Monday’s program on Friday).
Daily – Log in every day (ignores weekends).
Sundays thru Saturdays – Log in once a week on the day selected to download the
program.
Selecting a daily check for a weekend program
will open a warning window stating a daily
check should not be used for a weekend program.
Time: Specifies the time (in 24 hour format) when
the Amb-OS User Interface will transfer a program. While different times can be used for
every program on a site, using the same time for all programs on the site eliminates unnecessary traffic
on the host site.
WARNING
If the time to transfer is scheduled before a program is available, the
program will be missed and have to be transferred manually.
The Amb-OS User Interface follows the “After 12 PM (noon) Rule.” Scheduled times before 12 PM
(noon) transfers the same day’s program and times after 12 PM (noon) transfers the next day’s program.
A missed program will have to be transferred manually.
Distribution: Select the days the program airs and will be available
on the FTP site. If a weekend program comes on a Wednesday,
make sure only “W” is green. If more days are selected for a one
day a week program, the FTP will log in more than necessary.
If a program does not get posted until after the selected day, the program will have to be transferred
manually. For example, selecting Tuesday to transfer a program posted on Wednesday.
If a program has a daily date, the “Mo,” “Tu,” “We,” “Th” and “Fr” boxes are automatically highlighted.
Clicking on one of the days will clear the individual box. Double clicking on any of the weekdays will
clear the boxes if they were highlighted and select them if they were clear.
Save: After setting all file settings and transfer times, click on “Save.”
WARNING
If the Manage sites window is closed or another program is selected before
clicking on “Save,” all edits and changes will be lost.

Menu Buttons
Destination dir
This opens a dialog box to select a the
destination folder of the transferred
programs. Select the desired folder and
press “OK” to save the directory. A
folder can be on a different computer as long as it is connected to
the same network. This is particularly useful when transferring
programs to automation system. However, if the network fails,
the program will not be transferred and an error will be generated
indicating it cannot fine the specified directory.
WARNING
If a destination directory is on a different
computer and the network fails or the
destination computer fails, the program will
not transfer.
If the Browse For Folder dialog opened after importing a settings
file, the “System info” box opened to enter the AMR-100’s IP
address and serial number.
NOTE
When installing the Amb-OS User Interface the first time, the program will
ask for a destination folder for the audio files.
WARNING
The destination directory needs to be on a drive with several gigabytes free
or the drive will need to have old files removed. The Amb-OS User Interface
will be unable to transfer programs if there is not enough space on the
destination drive.

Refresh
After making changes to the timed transfers or to make sure the latest programs have been transferred from
the receiver, use the “Refresh” button. This immediately rereads the programs on the AMR-100 and updates
any timed transfer changes, but it does not transfer programs.
Next Refresh
A total refresh in the “Tools” menu rereads the programs on the AMR-100 and also transfers programs.
Newly arrived programs update automatically and the system refreshes every 10 minutes. The next refresh
time is shown in under the “next refresh” message.
Enable Miscellaneous Transfers
This option turns on and off the automatic transfer of programs that do
not have a timed transfer in the “File rename” box. Checking the
“Enable misc transfers” box causes programs to automatically transfer
to the destination directory. If this box is not checked, then the
programs without a timed transfer will not be transferred. All
programs listed in the “Transfer Queue” window, do not have a transfer time. Without checking this box,
programs will have to be transferred manually.
Exit
“Exit” terminates the program. Terminating the Amb-OS User Interface prevents
programs from transferring so a confirmation window opens when clicking on
“Exit.” Press “Yes” to confirm exiting or “No” to return to the Amb-OS User
Interface. To finish background processes and clear the transfer queue, the Amb-OS
User Interface delays the shutdown for three seconds.

System Errors
If the Amb-OS User Interface encounters a problem in the Windows®
operating system, the “System errs” button appears. Clicking on it opens a
window showing the error. Each error has the date and time of the error,
the error number, the name of the program that was being transferred and a
description of the file. Additionally, any
number can be put in the “Look up error
number” box to give a verbose description of
an error number.
After displaying the “System error” window,
the “System errs” button disappears until
another system error occurs.
If the problem continues, Windows® may shut
down the Amb-OS User Interface.

Amb-OS User Interface Windows
Several windows display information about what the Amb-OS User Interface is doing. The “Transfer
Queue” shows programs being transferred immediately after arriving. The “Timed transfers” shows the
programs transferred only at the time listed. programs with a timed transfer are not listed in the “Transfer
Queue” and programs without a timed transfer are not listed in the “Timed transfer” window. Between the
two windows, all the programs are shown that will be transferred. In order to have programs without a timed
transfer get automatically transferred, select the “Enable misc transfers” box.
WARNING
Files that have not arrived are not listed in either window. Only those files
that have been successfully received are shown.
Edit Queue

Transfer Queue
This shows programs that will be transferred as soon as
they arrive if the “Enable misc transfers” box is checked.
The Amb-OS User Interface transfers the program from
the AMR-100 to the directory selected in the destination
directory option. The window displays the program
renames, selected in the “File Rename” window.
Clearing the “Enable misc transfers” box disables the automatic transfer and removes programs from the
“Transfer Queue” window. This also means programs without a timed transfer will have to be manually
transferred with the “Files/transfers” window.
Revision 22 – Amb-OS User Interface Rev. 19
78
© 2014
Edit Queue
This pauses the transfer of programs for thirty seconds and allows programs to be reordered. To move a file
to the top of the list, double click on the desired program. If no transfers are in progress, the selected
program moves to the top of the list. Programs in the process of being transferred or converted will not be
aborted so the selected program will be put after the transferring program and be the next program
transferred. The queue automatically restarts in thirty seconds to prevent the queue from being permanently
disabled and stopping programs from being transferred. The countdown timer to restart the queue appears
on the screen.
The restart timer cannot be reset by clicking
on “Edit Queue.” The queue has to be
restarted and then click on “Edit Queue” to
pause the queue for another thirty seconds. As
soon as the “Start queue” is clicked, the
current transfer resumes or the next program begins transferring.
Start Queue
This button appears each time when clicking on the “Edit queue” button. This allows the queue to be
restarted before the thirty second pause finishes. If the “Start queue” button is not pressed, the queue
automatically restarts in thirty seconds to prevent the queue from being permanently disabled.
Timed Transfers
This shows the programs with their specific
transfer times entered in the Rename files
window. Programs are listed in chronological
order starting with the earliest transfer. The
“Transfer queue” window shows unscheduled
transfers if the “Enable misc transfers” box is
checked.
Missed transfer times
If the Amb-OS User Interface was not running at the time of a scheduled transfer or a program arrived after
the scheduled transfer time, the program will be transferred when the Amb-OS User Interface is restarted or
when the file is available. If a program arrives or the Amb-OS User interface is started more than 24 hours
after its scheduled transfer time, the program will have to be transferred manually.
WARNING
Programs more than 24 hours later than their scheduled transfer time have to
be transferred manually.
The “Refresh” button updates the window and shows all the programs that have arrived and any pending
transfers. The updated list inserts programs in their appropriate time slots. The Amb-OS User Interface will
not transfer any program more than 24 hours after its scheduled transfer time so a late program does not
overwrite the current day’s program. However, should program need to be transferred, go the
“Files/transfer” window in “Tools” and manually transfer it.

Activity Log Window
The Activity window shows the Amb-OS User Interface program activity. A complete list of messages is
listed in the “Appendix.”
Activity Log File
The Amb-OS User Interface automatically creates
the “Activity Log File” once a month. The AmbOS User Interface just uses the month for the
log’s file name. That means log files are only kept
for one year. The log file for January 2014
(activity01Jan.txt) will be overwritten with the log
file for January 2015 (activity01Jan.txt).
File names for the logs:
The activity log files are “activity##MMM.txt”
The FTP log files are “ftplog##MMM.txt”
(## = month number – 01, 02)
(MMM = month name – Jan, Feb)
The “Activity Log file” can be used to check the actual transfer time of programs to verify if programs were
transferred at the appropriate time and to see the actual transmission time. Remember, programs will not be
transferred until they have been successfully received.
The Activity Log File can be viewed by using the “Explore log files” under the “Tools” menu.

After opening the backup file, the file rename patterns will
be shown. Verify the data in the file and click on “Import.”
If the file does not have the correct information, either
search for a file on a computer or get the file from the AmbOS FTP site. Click on “Back to start” to select a different
source.
If no download directory or destination directory was specified in the
imported settings, a local directory will open to allow the selection of the
destination directory. The dialog at startup is the same as the directory
selection at installation.
Select the destination directory, then click on “Import” to start the AmbOS User Interface.
File Import from Receiver Error Messages
If the wrong AMR-100 serial number or IP address is used, the Amb-OS User Interface will return an error
dialog box that the receiver could not be found.
If the receiver is new and the export file does not exist, the
Amb-OS User will return to the Initial Startup window with
a message saying it could not import the file.

Import a backup file on Ambassador’s FTP site
If the AMR-100 has been replaced, use the serial number of the old AMR-100. If the replacement AMR-100
was in another site, a backup file will exist on the Amb-OS FTP site, but the file will not have the settings
for the current application.
Click on the “Look for an export file on Ambassador backup site,” to open the dialog box to enter the AMR100 serial number. Enter the serial number of the receiver.
If the Amb-OS User Interface has been installed for an
existing receiver, a window will open asking to select a file.
The Amb-OS User Interface does periodic backups to the
Amb-OS FTP site. Click on the down arrow on the right to list
the available files. Highlight the desired file. Normally, that
would be the most recent file.
If the AMR-100 has been replaced, after selecting the desired
import file, change the AMR-100 serial number and IP
address to match the specifications of the current receiver.
This puts the correct information in the System information.
If no download directory or destination directory was specified in the
imported settings, a local directory will open to allow the selection of
the destination directory. The dialog at startup is the same as the
directory selection at installation.
Select the destination directory, then click on “Import” to start the
Amb-OS User Interface.

FTP Import Errors
If a bad serial number is entered, the Amb-OS User
Interface returns an error box reporting the serial number
was bad. If the receiver was never installed before, no
backup file will exist.
If no download directory or destination directory was
specified in the imported settings, a local directory will
open to allow the selection of the destination directory.
The dialog at startup is the same as the directory selection
at installation.
Select the destination directory, then click on Import to
start the Amb-OS User Interface.
Manually enter information
If no backup file (local or remote) exits or to enter all new
settings, select the “Manually enter information” button.
A dialog box opens to enter the AMR-100’s serial number
and IP address and a destination directory. The destination
directory has to be selected or an error will come up in
the dialog box.
The dialog information remains unchanged if no
destination directory was selected so simply select the
“Browse for destination directory” button to select the
destination directory.
After selecting the destination directory the Amb-OS User Interface will open. All the file transfers or
playlists will have be created, because no settings were imported.
Program Name Changes
When ministries change program names, the Amb-OS User Interface will automatically change the listing in
the “Rename files” window, but leave the local pattern unchanged. The Amb-OS User Interface opens a
window with a summary of the changes and the option to accept or postpone the changes.
Yes: Makes the changes immediately.
No: Ignores the changes.
Tomorrow: Will make the changes the next
day.
Much later: Makes the changes at a later
time.
Programs can also be checked at any time with
the “Recheck name changes” in the “Support”

File Transfer Methods
The Amb-OS User Interface transfers programs immediately after being received (miscellaneous transfers)
or at a scheduled time and day (timed transfers). Miscellaneous transfers are programs with no time in the
“Xfer time [day]” column in the “Rename files” window. The “Enable misc transfers” box has to be
checked or programs without a timed transfer have to be done manually.
Miscellaneous Transfers
Miscellaneous transfers automatically transfers a program as soon as it arrives. This option works if using a
unique program name, because new programs will not overwrite the previous program. When using the
same program name every day a transferred program could overwrite an existing program before it airs. For
example, if using “IFL-Daily” for all programs and the new program arrives at 8:00 am and the program airs
at 9:00 am, that program could be replaced when the new program arrives. By using a transfer time after the
program finishes airing (9:30 am or later) avoids this problem.
Automatic transfers can be enabled or disabled with “Enable misc transfers” box. Without checking the
“Enable misc transfers” box, programs will not be listed in the “Transfer queue” window and have to be
transferred manually through the files/transfer window. Checking the “Enable misc transfers” box lists
programs in the “Transfer queue” window and automatically transfers the programs after being received.
Timed Transfers
Timed transfers work well when using the same name every day for a program, but it can be used for all
program transfers. The new program will only be transferred at the time specified in the “Xfer time [day]”
column in the “Rename files” window. Timed transfers prevent a new program from overwriting the current
day’s program if the transfer time is after the current program airs. If a program does not arrive until after
the time in the “Xfer time [day]” column, it will transfer immediately after being received unless it arrives
24 hours after the scheduled transfer time.
Manual Transfers
Without a time specified in the “Xfer time [day]” column in the “Rename files” window and without the
“Enable misc transfers” box checked, a program will have to be transferred manually. To do a manual
transfer, open the “Files/transfer” window and double click on the program to transfer.
Manual program transfers retain the name specified in the rename pattern and applies any changes to the
program as specified in the “System info” section (“Output format,” “Output channels,” “File output
extension” or any Cart Chunk options).

Manual FTP Transfers
In the “Manage Sites” window:
•
Log in to a site, navigate to the directory
•
Click on the program
•
Click on “Save as” to download it.
This method will not change the program’s name with files rename or convert it to a different format.
In the Status Window:
Option 1: Click on the date that has the missed program.
Option 2: Click on the box of the missed program.
Option 3: Refresh a site with the with
downloads box checked. This will
transfer all programs that meet or have missed their transfer times.
Do not use option 3 to transfer only one program.
Day Offset
The day offset for program transfers and for playlists are different due to the hardware requirements of the
AMR-100 receiver.
Transfer Day Offset
Use a negative number to prefeed or get a program before the scheduled air date and a positive number to
day the transfer after the air date.
Example – air date 05-14-14:
-1, the file will be transferred on 05-13-14
0, the file will be transferred on 05-014-14
1, the file will be transferred on 05-05-09
For a full discussion on entering day offsets for transfers please refer to the “Rename Files” section.
Playlist Day Offset
Use a positive number to prefeed programs in the playlist and a negative number to delay the transfer after
the air date.
Example – air date of 05-14-14
1 or +1, the file will be played on 05-13-14
0, the file will be played on 05-14-14
-1, the file will be played on 05-15-14
For a full discussion on the entering day offsets for the playlist, please refer to the “Playlist Editor” section.
After 12 PM (noon) Rule
In “Rename files” box under “Xfer time [day],” the Amb-OS User Interface transfers the same day’s
program if scheduled before 12 PM (noon) and transfers the next day’s program after 12:00 PM (noon) if
without a day offset used.
09:00 will transfer the program for 02-05-14 on 02-05-14
13:00 will transfer the program for 02-06-14 on 02-05-14
If any day offset is put in the “Xfer time [day]” box, this rule is ignored.

Program Names
MMMM_PPP#_MM-DD-YY_PN-TP.MP2
MMMM = Ministry Name
PPP# = Program Name
MM-DD-YY = Program air date
PN-TP = part number (PN) of total parts (TP)
All the program names (PPP#) end with a number. That number indicates how many times the program airs
in a week.
5 = 5 times a week – typically M-F. If so, the date of the program will be a week day.
1 = 1 time a week – typically a weekend. If so, the date of the program will be a Saturday or Sunday.
The parts are described by the part number (PN) of the program and the total number of parts (TP). Thus 0101 means this is the only part of a one part program. 02-03 means the file is the second part of a three part
program.
Examples of file names:
FOTF_FOF5_06-13-14_01-01.MP2
FOTF = Focus on the Family
FOF5 = Focus on the Family daily program
06-13-14 = Program’s air date is June 13, 2014
01-01 = 1 part program, this is part 1 of 1 part.
LWFM_LWF5_06-12-14_01-03.MP2
LWFM = Love Worth Finding Ministries
LWF5 = Love Worth Finding daily program
05-06-09 = Program’s air date is June 12, 2014
01-03 = 3 part program, this is part 1 of 3 parts.
IFLM_PAT1_06-14-14_01-03.MP2
IFLM = Insight for Living Ministries
PAT1 = Paws and Tales Weekend
06-14-14 = Program’s air date is June 14, 2014
01-03 = 3 part program, this is part 1 of 3 parts.
Program Specifications
All files on the Amb-OS system are MP2 format, 48K sample rate and normalized to -6 dBfs.
Broadcast Wave Format
The BWF format uses an MP2 encoding format with a WAV header and WAV extension. The BWF program
has the bext, mext, and fmt information in the header.
To create BWF compatible programs:
•
Leave the program format as MP2
•
Use the “Insert fmt chunk in mp2” to insert the header information
•
Force the program extension to WAV with “Special file extension”

Activity Window Messages
began monitoring: The Amb-OS User Interface began monitoring files on the AMR-100.
comb: A multiple part file was combined into one file.
ERR: An error happened when either transferring a file or during the “MP2 Verify.” The error follows the
filename. Three attempts are made to transfer or verify; therefore, if less than three errors are reported
for the same file, the transfer was successful.
fwatch: Filewatch from the AMR-100. The Amb-OS User Interface receives a message from the AMR-100
when a new file has been successfully received.
rcvd: A file was successfully received by the AMR-100.
rcvg: A file is being received by the AMR-100.
refresh holding for fwatch: A refresh is scheduled, but it is waiting for the results from the fwatch.
repl: A file was resent to the AMR-100 and it replaced an existing file within the 24 hour window for a daily
program and seven days for a weekly program.
REPL: A replacement file has been queued.
temp cleanup: The temporary directory has been cleaned to avoid transfer errors.
total refresh: The user executed a “Total refresh” from the tools menu.
xfer: A file was successfully transferred from the receiver to the destination directory.
AMR Receiver Models
AMR-100
The AMR-100 has an RF section to receive programs from the Amb-OS satellite feed. It can also receive
programs from the Internet with a LAN connection and access to the Internet on the network.
AMR-100I
The AMR-100I does not have a RF section and uses the Internet to receive programs.
Multiple Amb-OS User Interface Instances
Different computers can run the Amb-OS User Interface to control the same receiver, but the computers
cannot have the same temporary and destination directory, because program conflicts would happen when
transferring the same program.
Keeping default temporary directory on the local computer would not cause a conflict in that directory. If
the same temporary directory is used on the same computers using the same transfer times, when the AmbOS User Interface transfers a program, both computers would try to write the same program to the same
directory and cause file write issues preventing the program from transferring.
The same thing would happen if the destination directory was the same on different computers. While
tempting to put programs in the same directory when transferring, that can cause transfers to fail or
programs to get corrupted. Use different destination directories for each computer running the Amb-OS
User Interface. With a different destination directory, copy the programs from the secondary destination
directory to the primary destination directory.
To change the backup computer to the main computer, change the destination directory of the Amb-OS User
Interface on the desired computer to main destination directory location and then change the other computer
to the backup destination directory.

Amb-OS Program Listing
Updated 10/07/2009
To get the most accurate information goto: http://www.focussat.net/ambos/programs.html
When several versions of a program (eg COMM NC Border etc) exit, the program received on the AMR100 will have same name. Only one version will be delivered to the AMR-100.
The Queued column is the time (eastern) the program gets queued for satellite delivery and the number of
days before the air date the program is queued or scheduled for delivery. Programs get sent sequentially and
one at time. If multiple programs get queued at the same time or a previous program did finish transmitting,
a program may arrive later than the queued time. Look at the “Activity log” window to see what time a file
arrived on your receiver so you know when it can be transferred or played.
