Can't control color of an led strip controller via HUE bridge

  • Platform information:

I’m using the HUE binding to control lights attached to my HUE bridge.
Besides other lights a Sunricher RGB+CCT controller is attached to the bridge. I can turn on/off the strip and control the color temperature. But I don’t manage to control the RGB colors. The strip controller appears as a single device towards the HUE bridge. On my sitemap I use 3 types to control the strip: a switch (ok), a slider for the color temp. (ok) and a colorpicker. I discovered things via auto-discovery.

Issue: The saturation slider of the color picker controls the brightness instead of saturation. The color picker itself has no effect on the color at all.
