I have a question concerning how to make scanimage always come up with
the same scanner device.  Right now it's showing that I have a Hauppauge
TV tuner as a scanner and that's default and what I have is an Epson
scanner and I am not really sure how to change to the appropriate
scanner here is what I get when I run scanimage -L:

device vdl:/dev/video; 

device epson2:libusb:002:003

device epson:usb:libusb:002:003 is a epson gt-8200 flatbed scanner

Any help would be appreciated.
