it is more comfortable to scan for devices via gui then click configure the autodetected library. after that you can use nsradmin with an input file where all the commands go

so you create a nsr.in file which will contain

. type: NSR jukebox
update idle device timeout: 20

then you will run nsradmin -i nsr.in and the commands will be performed

but be aware if you make a syntax error or mistake you can do more harm than good.

personally i think that there are not so many parameters to configure on a library not to do it by hands
