Knowing what Start Code is being used for communication is the first best indicator. RDM uses the 0xCC Start Code. Anything that was released prior to RDM formally being approved will either use a Manufacturer's own registered Start Code or the ESTA development Start Code.

From a development perspective, the product I use to see exactly what is going on the wire back and forth is the Enttec RDM Sniffer. It's a very useful tool for putting on the wire and watching all the traffic back and forth. If you really want to learn how RDM works at a very detailed level it is useful for understanding what is actually going on.
