       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  re-
       quires  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	 auto-
       matic  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 spec-
	      ified,  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.

       Please file all bug reports in the  bugs	 section  of  our  SourceForge
       Project page.

       This  software  is not supported, affiliated, or	controlled by Logitech
       in any way.
