Hello, first post so be nice. This has probably been posted a million times before but I cannot find what I'm looking for.

I have got a Ideal Vogue C26 Gen2 boiler and just purchased a Hive mini thermostat.

I have seen a post with the wiring and videos on YouTube however when I have connected the cables etc it's not responding the the boiler and turning on the heating.

One video on YouTube said about a link cable on the receiver from live to 1 however there's no cable from the receiver going into the boiler on the video.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Can you post a photo of the front of your boiler? Make sure you get the boiler checked for safety afterwards from opening it up. What was the existing that you’ve replaced?
It's an ideal wireless thermostat currently installed

Do you have a diagram on this? How do I set to maximum?
Where is the wiring for the thermostat receiver, or is it built in to the front of the boiler?

post a pic of the hive mini , looks like it is not binding with the receiver, it is wired correctly, post a pic of the receiver when the thermostat is calling for heat too
I have disconnected it for now. The mini was talking to the app on my phone and the correct green lights came on the receiver but the boiler didn't fire up?
