RDM maintains the traditional DMX model of a single control source with multiple controlled destinations.

No, I didn't mean muticastor anthng that fancy.
1 single device, 1 controller but device has built in control for the outputsvia whatever means.
Ok, I didn't expect the info as realtime either but if I see for example that channel n appears to be solid on or off or somewhin, it would be great to see if its output level is actually that or if the channel has popped or maybe the lamp.

Kind regards
