Be nice if that worked. It seems that concordance is compiled against the
original draft USB headers as against the more modern libraries most distros
supply. (It looks for usb.h as opposed to libusb.h.) I can't get mine to work at
all, had to borrow a laptop off my son to set it up.
Oh, and the website is bad, all right. I only managed to figure my way through
it by accident. It didn't recognise my new TV, thought it was similar to a
completely different one. Fortunately a call to the (toll-free) helpline found
me a helpful lady who sorted my problem out. Eventually.
