    Hi guys I have a firebird slimline combi that uses a timer for both water and heating circuits. Looking at the hive options I think I need the dual channel and not the regular combi package? Any help appreciated

    Thank you! The boiler has connections for room stat (just bridge these I assume) and switched live for the central heating and the hot water. The hive is it just a relay inside so I need to jump the live to the normally open connection?

    nope no links required on the hive they are already made internally , then HW NO to HW switched live at boiler and CH NO to CH switched live at boiler and make a link between the thermostat connections at the boiler

    The dual Hive does not have access to the Com connections, they are both internally linked to Live
