rdm_responder_test.py — Test RDM responders for adherance to the standards

Synopsis

rdm_responder_test.py [options] <uid>

Description

Run a series of tests on a RDM responder to check the behaviour. This requires the OLA server to be running, and the RDM device to have been detected. You can confirm this by running ola_rdm_discover -u UNIVERSE.  This will send SET commands to the broadcast UIDs which means the start address, device label etc. will be changed for all devices connected to the responder. Think twice about running this on your production lighting rig.
