Welcome to the forums!

If you are implementing a responder, which is what it sounds like from your post, then you don't really need to detect or listen to the other discovery response traffic. To an observer on the wire, the Discovery Unique Branch message coming from the controller and all the responses coming from the devices will just look like a single frame of data with a large interframe delay.

Any packets of data that a responder would need to monitor will all be preceded with the proper reset sequence. Only splitters, inline devices, and controllers must be capable of handling the breakless response from the Discovery Unique Branch message.
