    I have a Potterton EP2001 heating control box which i want to change to the Hive system

    I have posted some pictures of the inside of the old system coming out.
    And also of the new Hive system going in.

    On the old system there seems to be a wire going to number 5 , but there is no number 5 on th new hive system.

    Please can anyone help and tell me were the wires from the old system will go when i put them into the new system.

    If it can be as simple as can be please lol like number 1 in old goes to number 3 in new ect.

    5 is the link from the live wire which is internal on the Hive so discard that short red wire..

    Apart from that the L, N, 3 and 4 are the same.

    Thanks for that quick reply.

    So just to confirm , there will be no wires going into 1 and 2 on the hive system.

    Thanks again
