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 it.
- 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
- 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
- -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
- -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
- Additionally, you can specify options to adjust the
behavior of the software:
- -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.
None known at time of release, but check the website.
