    To tell you the truth I am not sure . I purchased the hive to control both hot water and the heating , although to be honest I wondered why I needed to control the hot water
    After watching you tube and comparing options I went with this one (image ) .
    As you will see the hot water shows it is on , but it doesn’t fire the boiler up .
    (I have put the thermostat in the image also, normally it is down stairs )

    That's the point, you don't have to control the water with a combi-boiler.

    Can you swap it for a single channel?

    Hi , no I went back to the store where I purchased it and they only offered a replacement if it was faulty .

    Does this mean it won’t work , or are you aware of a way it will work but only to control the heating ?

    Really appreciate this help . I’m normally ok with the hands on stuff and tech , but clearly I need to work on it a little
