Default broadcast Disvovery Mute/Unute

Hello

I read in the spec at 5.3 that devices shall not respond to broadcast messages except discovery messsages.

While this makes sense for the DISCOVERY_UNIQUE_BRANCH command, I am not sure if devices must respond to a broadcast DISCOVERY_UN_MUTE and DISCOVERY_MUTE or not?

In my opnion, it will cause clashes on the bus if they all respond but maybe there is a reason for this?

Can someone please clarify this for me?

Kind regards
Bernt

Bernt,

The ONLY Broadcast message that devices should respond to is the DISCOVERY_UNIQUE_BRANCH message. Responding to a Broadcast sent to the Mute or Un-Mute would cause lots of issues.

The spec is not clear on that though
