    21 This manual assumes that you have intermediate computer and internet skills. 
    22  
    23 The [http://www.upnp.org UPnP forum] defined an Audio Visual specification, [http://www.upnp.org/standardizeddcps/documents/UPnPAvArchtiecture0.83.pdf UPnP AV], which defined the interaction between UPnP control points and UPnP devices. The UPnP AV architecture was designed to be independent of device type, content format and transfer protocol. 
    24  
    25 The Kinsky software suite is a range of UPnP control point implementations as defined in the UPnP AV specification. The [wiki:UPnP UPnP] page gives an overview of how a control point fits into the overall UPnP AV architecture. 
    26  
    27 A Kinsky control point coordinates the operation between Media Servers, Silver Disk Players and Media Renderers, in response to user interaction.

    64  
    65 == Navigation == 
    66  
    67 There are three main views, '''Now Playing''', '''Playlist''', and '''Library'''. 
    68  
    69 To change to a different view tap the desired view in the menu bar. 
    70  
    71 On any of the three main views it is possible to bring up a context menu by pressing and holding on the touch screen. From the context menu it is possible to access extra options, (which are specific to the view you are on), as well as the room/source selection screen, the advanced options screen and exit the application. 
    72  
    73 == Selecting a Room and Source == 
    74  
    75 You can acess the room/source selection screen from any of the main views via the context menu. 
    76  
    77 Tap the room selection box at the top of the screen will expand the box to show a list of available rooms. Select the room you wish to control, by tap on the room name. Selecting the room automatically brings the room out of standby. 
    78  
    79 If a room has been selected the source list will show a list of available sources in the room. To select a source, double tap on the source; the currently selected source indicator will move to the newly selected source. 
    80  
    81 == Volume Control == 
    82  
    83 If the currently select room has a preamp that is able to be controlled by !KinskyPda, then the volume up, volume down buttons and current volume will be visible on the '''Now Playing''' and '''Playlist''' screens. 
    84  
    85 To control the volume tap the volume up and down buttons. The current volume text will update to indicate the new volume. The default volume step size can be changed in the options page. The default value is 3. 
    86  
    87 To mute your preamp you will need to bring up the context menu whilst in either the '''Now Playing''' or the '''Playlist''' screen. 
    88  
    89 == Playback Control == 
    90  
    91 Use the playback controls to perform playback tasks on the currently selected source, such as play/pause, previous track, and next track. 
    92  
    93 To stop the current track you will need to bring up the context menu whilst in either the '''Now Playing''' or the '''Playlist''' screen. 
    94  
    95 == Playing music from your library == 
    96  
    97 A Linn DS can play music from any computer or Network Addressed Storage (NAS) device on your home network where you have a UPnP media server running. A UPnP media server indexes your digital music collection and provides a mechanism for !KinskyPda to browse your music collection. As you add new tracks to the indexed music folders, the media server will update the list of available tracks. 
    98  
    99 If you are browsing the media server during an update, !KinskyPda will move your current browsing location to the top level. 
    100  
    101 When you make music selections, they are added to the list of tracks on the currently selected DS, this list of tracks is known as the playlist. In the '''Playlist''' screen a play indicator, (to the left of the track), indicates the currently playing track. When you add music selections to the playlist you can add them to the end of the playlist (Insert) or add them to the end of the playlist and start playing (Insert and play). 
    102  
    103 === Making a music selection === 
    104  
    105 To browse your library, first select the '''Library''' screen (via the menu bar). Double tap containers to show their contents (tap the back button to go back up a level). 
    106  
    107 To make a music selection from your library, highlight the item (if it is a valid item to add to the playlist the 'Insert' and 'Insert and play' buttons will enable), then tap the desired action to add the highlighted item to the playlist. Items are always added to the end of the playlist. 
    108  
    109 To the left of each item is an icon depicting the type of item it represents. 
    110  
    111 == Playlist management == 
    112  
    113 === Deleting the playlist === 
    114  
    115 From either the '''Now Playing''' or the '''Playlist''' views, click and hold to bring up the context menu. 
    116  
    117 From the context menu select the 'Delete All' action. 
    118  
    119 === Deleting a track === 
    120  
    121 From the '''Playlist''' view, click and hold, on the track to be deleted, to bring up the context menu. 
    122  
    123 From the context menu select the 'Delete Track' action. 
    124  
    125 == Putting a room into standby ==

    129 == Operation in a multi-room environment == 
    130  
    131 [[Image(wiki:KinskyPdaImage:Options.png, align=right)]] 
    132  
    133 !KinskyPda can be run in three modes of operation, configurable through the advanced options dialog. The advanced options dialog is accessable through the context menu on any of the three main views. 
    134  
    135 === Single DS Mode === 
    136  
    137 This is the default mode of operation. 
    138  
    139 In this mode of operation !KinskyPda automatically connects to the first preamp, source and library that it discovers on the home network. 
    140  
    141 === Multi DS Mode === 
    142  
    143 There are two use cases for !KinskyPda in a multi DS environment, 
    144  
    145  1. There is a PDA in each room requiring control 
    146  1. The PDA roams across multiple rooms 
    147  
    148 The first use case is configured by selecting 'Single room' and selecting the room the PDA should automatically subscribe to, leaving source and library as 'Default'. In this mode !KinskyPda will automatically connect to named room and the first library discovered on the home network. 
    149  
    150 The second use case is configured by selecting 'Multi room', leaving library as 'Default'. In this mode !KinskyPda will only automatically connect to the first library discovered on the home network, leaving the room selection to be manually selected by the user. 
    151  
    152 === Multiple Libraries === 
    153  
    154 If you set the library then !KinskyPda will automatically select the named library. 
    155  
    156 = Troubleshooting = 
    157  
    158 == When I launch !KinskyPda I get the error message "The application (!KinskyPda.exe) requires a newer version of the Microsoft(r) .NET Compact Framework than the version installed on this device" == 
    159  
    160 If you receive this error message it means that your PDA does not have the Microsoft .NET Compact Framework v3.5 installed. 
    161  
    162 To fix the problem download and install v3.5 of the Microsoft .NET Compact Framework, you can download it from [http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e3821449-3c6b-42f1-9fd9-0041345b3385&displaylang=en here], (you need to run the installer from a PC, which has your PDA docked and connected via !ActiveSync). 
    163  
    164 == When I launch !KinskyPda it doesn't completely fill the screen; I still see the Windows Start button and taskbar. == 
    165  
    166 Open Internet Explorer and put it into and back out of fullscreen mode. Internet Explorer's fullscreen option can be found by bringing up Internet Explorer's context menu.
