    I am planning on installing the Hive 2 programmer, and I'm trying to work out how to disconnect the British Gas wireless thermostat from the system.

    I understand the timer can be easily changed for the 2 channel Hive unit with L N 1 2 3 4 teminals. I believe it should clip directly onto the back plate.

    The bit that I am unsure about is how to disconnect the BG thermostat receiver unit. The box is to the bottom right in the main picture. I imagine I will need to bridge the terminals so that essentially the thermostat is bypassed and wired on, so it can be removed?

    Take out the bottom connection (top row) 2 and 3 plus the neutral and/or earth wire coming from this same wire and leave it out.

    Put a link between 4 and 9 at the top by taking the one already between 3 and 9 out and reusing it.

    Job done. It couldn't be any easier for you with everything labelled like that.

    Thanks for the advice. :)
    Is it ok that there is no wire going to 'CH off' (terminal 2 of the programmer)?
