Hive wiring help

hi there new to the forum,

Just got a question about installing hive active heating 2, I need some advice on the wiring please,

My current setup is a ideal independent c35+ boiler which has a eph controls wrs1i receiver wired to it, and a wireless thermostat downstairs

My question is can I just simply swap wiring from the current receiver to the hive active 2 receiver, I've had a look at the hive wiring diagram but I'm not 100% sure, don't want to be chucking an extra 80pound to get it installed if it's just a simple swap over,

Pictures should be on here of current wiring of eph receiver and the hive instructions (diagram on the left)

Thank you

Done. This is about as simple as an install gets.
