I'd made a previous post here (http://www.ultimatehandyman.co.uk/forum1/replace-drayton-rts1-with-honeywell-cm927-t89582.html) but decided to change my mind on what I'm doing so thought a new post was appropriate.

I've decided to replace my Drayton LP241 heating/hot water controller with a Hive 2 Heating/Hot Water controller.

I have looked at the wiring of the current controller and it seems the same as the Hive 2 one, though their wiring diagram is a bit uninformative (http://www.alswebpage.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Hive-Connections.png - Dual channel one)

I've attached the images of the timer back plate and wiring. Can anyone please let me know if I need to change the wiring at all when I replace the controller with the Hive one? 1 and 2 on the wiring diagram aren't used at all at present, only L, N 3 & 4.

We also have a Drayton RTS1 at the moment as our thermostat (that's awful and needs to go). How would I go about safely disconnecting/decommissioning that?

You got a lot of extra wires in there that need identifying first, I'm away till Monday, hopefully Dave will look in and advise.

Thanks for the reply. I think some of the extra wires may be because we have a solar hot water system. However, this isn't controlled by the Drayton LP241 so that might not be it.

The boiler is an Ideal Icos HE24 if that helps!
