CAVS 205G USB

For each folder inside a device such as a flash drive, SD card, or a external hard drive, there can be maximum 65,536 files for use with CAVS 205G player due to the required FAT32 format. Given that there are two files (MP3 and CDG) for each song, this implies a physical limit of 32,768 songs per folder. You may also want to divide out the song files into multiple folders not necessarily due to the maximum limit but for better organization, such as to folders of songs for 90’s, 80’s, Pop, Rock, etc. This instruction shows how to name the multiple folders such that you can easily select a song across folders, changing from one folder to another.
  • Name the folders as ‘MCG#01’, ‘MCG#02’, ‘MCG#03’, etc. inside the device.
  • Name the song files inside each folder as ‘00001.mp3, 00001.cdg’, ‘00002.mp3, 00002.cdg’, ‘00003.mp3, 00003.cdg’, etc. The song files can be (MP3, MCG) file format or any other file format that are supported in the CAVS 205G player.
  • After inserting the device into the CAVS 205G player, a folder will appear on the TV screen with ‘Select Song’ message.
  • Press ’01’, ’02’, ’03’, etc. followed by ‘Menu’ button. This will select a folder.
  • Press a song number ‘00001’, ‘00002’, ‘00003’, etc. followed by ‘Play’ button. This will select a song.
  • END

    For the song files in the Super CD+G format (disc or drive), the index number of the song files do not change. But for the song files of MP3+G or AVC in a drive, the index number of the song files can change when song files are added or removed. It is because the index numbers are generated each time according to the order of the song files being copied into the drive.

    To fix the index number of the song files from changing, name each of the song file as #00000-TITLE-SINGER.
    For example,
    #12345-TITLE-SONGER.MP3, #12345-TITLE-SINGER.CDG
    #12345-TITLE-SINGER.AVC
    The song files named as above will have the index number fixed as 12345.

    My microphone is connected to the 205G USB player using MIC 1 or MIC 2 jack in the front panel. The AV output of the 205G USB player is connected to a TV using HDMI or RCA outputs. But when I am singing into the microphone, the singing voice is coming out with a delay. The Echo is turned down to zero using the remote control of the 205G USB player.

    The cause is your AV connection. Instead of connecting audio directly from the 205G USB player to the receiver or speakers, you are connecting the AV output of the 205G USB player to the TV first using HDMI or RCA, and then taking the sound out from the TV to the receiver or audio system. Even the latest and greatest TVs in the world takes a split second to in-take the AV signal, process it, and then output the audio.

    So, if your receiver or audio system takes in only the RCA input, connect the 205G USB RCA audio output (red and white RCA outputs) to the receiver or audio system directly. If your receiver or audio receiver takes in the HDMI input, connect the HDMI output of the 205G USB player first into the receiver and let the receiver split the video portion which you can then connect to the TV, and let the audio portion go out to the speakers.

    If you are using the built-in speakers in the TV only, not a separate receiver or audio system, you can connect the HDMI or RCA output of the 205G USB player directly into the TV. But if you using a separate receiver or audio system with speakers that is not built-in to the TV, always go directly from the 205G USB player output to the receiver or audio system first.

    CAVS Remote Controller

    CAVS Remote Controller (for JB-199 mini and JB-199 mini pro) is a Wi-Fi 2.4 Ghz device that has a dual function of being a wireless mouse for the CAVS karaoke players. It means that the remote controller can be communicating with the karaoke player although no button is actually being pressed. This can lead to battery draining faster than expected.

    To turn off the wireless mouse feature, press the red cursor button located below the circular button at the center. Confirm that a physical movement of the remote controller does not move the screen cursor of the karaoke player. Note that the turning off the cursor will not interfere with the normal use of the remote controller for selecting and playing songs.

    E-Songbook

    This instruction shows how to enable or disable the CAVS Karaoke player to have a static IP address in a local network.
    The setting is as follows:
    • CAVS Karaoke player connects to a wireless router, using a LAN cable or Wi-Fi.
    • The wireless router assigns an IP address to the CAVS Karaoke player.
    • Customers connect the E-Songbooks such as phones or tablets to the same wireless router. Then they input the IP address of the CAVS Karaoke player to connect to CAVS Karaoke player and select songs.
    When the CAVS Karaoke player has the same IP address each time it is turned on, the customers can connect their E-Songbooks without inputting a new IP address each time. However, powering off the wireless router or CAVS Karaoke player overnight can change the IP address. This is when you may wish to set the CAVS Karaoke player to have a static IP address across power cycle.
    Enabling to have a static IP address assumes that the wireless router and CAVS Karaoke player stay the same in the setting. But when there is a need to change the router, such as to connect to Internet using a different router, the setting to have the static IP address in CAVS Karaoke player can block the connection to a new router. This is when you may wish to disable the setting for a static IP address in the CAVS karaoke player.

    JB-199 III Premier

    This instruction show how to customize the song numbers in a playlist. It applies to CAVS JB-199 III, JB-199 IV, JB-199 mini, and JB-199 mini II models.

    Open the playlist in ‘My Server’ or in a playlist slot (1 – 10).
    Highlight/mark the song (or all songs) that you wish to change the song numbers of. You can use a single click to select a single song, single click followed by Control-Clicks for additional songs, or use Click followed by Shift-Click for multiple songs.
    Right click on the highlighted song(s) and you will see a popup menu with following choices.

    • Index – Index all the songs as currently listed starting from 1 and sequentially thereafter.
    • Index with Start Number – For a highlighted song, index it with a start number inserted and sequentially thereafter.
    • Index with Filename – For all highlighted songs, index with filenames that are numerical, such as the song files in old JB-199 I or II.

    Only the above three methods are allowed for renumbering the songs. Manual editing individual song numbers are not allowed for possible user errors.

    This instruction shows the most common causes of no audio problem in CAVS karaoke player.
    The setting is as follows:
    • CAVS Karaoke player is connected to an external sound system using the analog (Red and White) RCA connectors (left most) on the back panel.
    • CAVS Karaoke player is turned on and playing a song.
    • The external sound system is turned on and set to correct input/output.
    When experiencing no audio, check the following settings:
    1. In the control panel of the karaoke program, go to Tools > Settings and set the ‘Sound’ to “Primary Sound Driver”.
    2. In the control panel of the karaoke program, set the ‘Volume’ level of music to ‘50’ or higher. Refer to the User Manual to find the Volume level control.
    3. In the Windows, go to Start > Settings > System > Sound and set the ‘Output’ to ‘Speakers (Realtek® Audio)’.

    E-Songbook receives the song list from the connected karaoke player. And if “My Server” in the karaoke player is empty (not loaded with a song list), E-Songbook will receive nothing and will show nothing under Title, Artist, or Index buttons.

    Go to the Control Panel of the karaoke player. In the bottom left section, highlight “My Server”. The currently loaded song list will appear on the bottom right section. And because it is empty, the bottom right section will be empty.

    Next in the bottom right section and click on the “Load” button to load a song list. Select a song list which is likely “Master Playlist” or “Master Library”.

    After loading the song list, click on the X mark at the top right corner to close the karaoke program. Power down the karaoke player. Restart the player and the karaoke program will start with the “My Server” loaded. Test the E-Songbook for proper operation.

    Above instruction is assuming that the E-Songbook is properly connected to the karaoke player via Wi-Fi.

    Also if the song list you are loading into “My Server” is named other than “Master Playlist”, consider renaming the song list as “Master Playlist” and loading it as “Master Playlist” into “My Server”. This is because the karaoke program, when “My Server” is empty, is designed to automatically look for “Master Playlist” and load it into “My Server”.

    When you see the message “JB-199 III Program has stopped working” or if the JB-199 III unit is stopping or crashing often, follow the instruction below to reset/refresh the player.

    This instruction shows the most common causes of no audio problem in CAVS karaoke player.
    The setting is as follows:
    • CAVS Karaoke player is connected to an external sound system using the analog (Red and White) RCA connectors (left most) on the back panel.
    • CAVS Karaoke player is turned on and playing a song.
    • The external sound system is turned on and set to correct input/output.
    When experiencing no audio, check the following settings:
    1. In the control panel of the karaoke program, go to Tools > Settings and set the ‘Sound’ to “Primary Sound Driver”.
    2. In the control panel of the karaoke program, set the ‘Volume’ level of music to ‘50’ or higher. Refer to the User Manual to find the Volume level control.
    3. In the Windows, go to Start > Settings > System > Sound and set the ‘Output’ to ‘Speakers (Realtek® Audio)’.

    When the program PlayCDG KJ Deluxe 64 LT which was fully activated or installed in your karaoke player has reverted to Demo mode, follow the steps below to recover the program to the full mode.

    1. Connect your PC or laptop to the Internet.
    2. Close and restart the PlayCDG KJ Deluxe 64 LT program.
    3. The PlayCDG KJ Deluxe 64 LT program will now begin in the full mode, without the Demo notice. If not, repeat the steps of closing and restarting the program.
    4. Next the program will need to be reset once it is recovered to the full mode. In the Control Panel, go to Help > Online Upgrade. Follow the screen instruction to upgrade the PlayCDG KJ Deluxe 64 LT program to the latest version.
    5. After the upgrade, the program will automatically restart. Go to Tools > Setting in the Control Panel and check the options you wish. Click OK when done.
    6. Go to the bottom left section of the Control Panel and highlight “My Server”. Go to the bottom right and press the “Load” button. Open the “Master Playlist” or “Master Library” whichever is your latest playlist.
    7. Next press the “X” mark at the top right in the Control Panel. It will close the PlayCDG KJ Deluxe 64 LT program. Restart the program and all the setting changes will be saved.

    E-Songbook receives the song list from the connected karaoke player. And if “My Server” in the karaoke player is empty (not loaded with a song list), E-Songbook will receive nothing and will show nothing under Title, Artist, or Index buttons.

    Go to the Control Panel of the karaoke player. In the bottom left section, highlight “My Server”. The currently loaded song list will appear on the bottom right section. And because it is empty, the bottom right section will be empty.

    Next in the bottom right section and click on the “Load” button to load a song list. Select a song list which is likely “Master Playlist” or “Master Library”.

    After loading the song list, click on the X mark at the top right corner to close the karaoke program. Power down the karaoke player. Restart the player and the karaoke program will start with the “My Server” loaded. Test the E-Songbook for proper operation.

    Above instruction is assuming that the E-Songbook is properly connected to the karaoke player via Wi-Fi.

    Also if the song list you are loading into “My Server” is named other than “Master Playlist”, consider renaming the song list as “Master Playlist” and loading it as “Master Playlist” into “My Server”. This is because the karaoke program, when “My Server” is empty, is designed to automatically look for “Master Playlist” and load it into “My Server”.
