I actually received one Two days ago myself and for the life of me cannot get the freakin thing to work properly. I would be certain its something I’m overlooking. I keep getting this

modprobe: ERROR: could not insert ‘spi_bcm2708’: No such device

You need to enable the SPI module via rasps-config and reboot before you continue with the installation of the ControlBlock driver. You can find a description at http://blog.petrockblock.com/2014/12/29/controlblock-power-switch-and-io-for-the-raspberry-pi/#Command-Line_Installation. There you can also find a video that demonstrates the whole installation. I am sure you find your missing step with that.
