       concordance - for programming your Logitech Harmony remote control



       For automatic mode:
              concordance <file>

       For manual mode:
              concordance <options>


       This  software  supports  programming Logitech Harmony remote controls.
       This software  uses  libconcord,  which  in  turn  uses  libusb,  which
       requires the RAWIO capability. That means you probably need root to use

       This software can be run in  one  of  two  modes.  If  you  run  it  in
       automatic  mode,  the  software will analyze the file to determine what
       sort of file it is and what to do with it. In some  cases,  concordance
       may not be able to deteremine the filetype; if this happens, you should
       use manual mode.

       In manual mode, you specify what you want to do. For  any  command-line
       option  that  requires  updating the remote, a filename is required. In
       manual mode, you must first choose a mode (and only one):


       -c, --dump-config [<filename>]
              Read the config from the remote and write it to a file.   If  no
              filename is specified, config.EZHex is used.

       -C, --write-config <filename>
              Read a config from <filename> and write it to the remote.

       -f, --dump-firmware [<filename>]
              Read  firmware  from  the  remote and write it to a file.  If no
              filename is specified firmware.EZUp is used.

       -F, --write-firmware <filename>
              Read firmware from <filename> and write it to the remote

       -h, --help
              Print this help message and exit.

       -i, --print-remote-info
              Print information about the remote. Additional information  will
              be printed if -v is also used.

       -k, --get-time
              Get time from the remote

       -K, --set-time
              Set the time on the remote

       -l, --learn-ir <filename>
              Learn  IR  commands from other remotes. Use <filename>. When you
              selected multiple commands to learn on the Logitech website, you
              can move through this command list and let the Harmony learn the
              IR code for each command.

       -r, --reset
              Reset (power-cycle) the remote control

       -s, --dump-safemode [<filename>]
              Read the safemode firmware from the remote and  write  it  to  a
              file.  If no filename is specified, safe.bin is used.

       -t, --connectivity-test <filename>
              Do a connectivity test using <filename>

       -V, --version
              Print the version and exit

       NOTE:  If  using the short options (e.g. -c), then *optional* arguments
       must be adjacent: -c/path/to/file. Required arguments don’t  have  this
       limitation, and can be specified -C /path/to/file or -C/path/to/file.

       Additionally,  you  can  specify  options to adjust the behavior of the


       -b, --binary-only
              When  dumping  a config or firmware, this specifies to dump only
              the binary portion. When use without a  specific  filename,  the
              default  filename’s extension is changed to .bin. When writing a
              config or firmware, this specifies the filename  passed  in  has
              just the binary blob, not the XML.

              Force.  This  forces  concordance  to  use  the file the way you
              specified, even if it doesn’t think that’s the kind of  file  it
              is. This is necessary for files dumped by concordance.

       -R, --no-reset
              For  config  or  firmware updates, do not reboot the device when
              done. This is generally only for debugging.

       -v, --verbose
              Enable verbose output.

       -w, --no-web
              Do not attempt to talk to the website. This is  useful  for  re-
              programming the remote from a saved file, or for debugging.

       BUGS   None known at time of release, but check the website.
