I can get a screwdriver between the wall box and the stand-off but there's no way they are going to separate without my breaking one of them. A piece of plastic which may act as some sort of stand-off or interface - it's the piece that has the 2 screws in the top (not any more though). I suspect this is integral to the main unit - I only mention it because it is a separate moulding

In reality, the blue wire may not be actually doing anything, but only the original installer would know. However as I said earlier, you are simply exchanging one electrical switch for another and the corresponding terminal at the Heatlink would be (1) Heating Satisfied. Are you saying that with the heating off the the heat satisfied also has a voltage, in the way terminal 3 has on the Horstmann. I'm wondering this due to the wiring indication that came with the valve, and also the number of wires in the connecting box. Look at the wiring diagram for your make/mode of room thermostat that you are removing. If you don't have the instructions for it, a diagram is usually printed inside the lid. This will show which are the two switching wires, and which is the neutral wire. (If there is a neutral present. Not all thermostats need or have one fitted) unfortunately you can't rely on the wire colours.For instance, I *hope* the cabling to each thermostat allows for me to install the NEST power supply (supplies?) in the hot tank cupboard (where the timer currently lives) and power each thermostat (remotely) that way.

I am assuming here that you are referring to a 'Secondary Hot Water Circulator' that circulates the domestic hot water around a ring main so that hot water is available instantly at each outlet, then the answer is yes you will need to move that to another timer. This is the first time I have come across this in a domestic property, but can understand why if you have an unusually long pipe run. I have only ever once come across a system with a 'central heating off' connection that contained a very uncommon type of motorised valve (MoMo, or Motor on, Motor off) that requires this connection to close it. Of course the Nest will not only switch off when the time goes off, but also switch off when the correct temperature is reached, but the wiring doesn't know that, as far as it is concerned it's just going off. If this is indeed the case, I don't think I can use the Nest unless I use some sort of relay, or change the valve. You will have to link the terminals L, and the two 'commons' 2 & 5 together at the Heatlink. [This link is made internally in the Horstmann]This will also be the case with the "similar Horstmann programmer" in your last post. The reason common terminals are provided outside of the unit, rather than connected to 230v inside, is so that they can be used to switch other voltages (some boilers use 24v) if required] I also don't really understand how each of the two-way valves operate - whether the timer "job shares" between the two zones and whether two NEST thermostats can replace that functionality. Or if each thermostat demands heat and the timer is on for each zone, both valves just open and they get served with hot water equally. The old thermostat can't simply be disconnected as this would leave the heating wiring 'open circuit' and the heating would not operate; the integrity of the circuit needs to be maintained.

Finally on the programmer what would be the point in providing term 3 to be live when the heating was off. By pulling outward and generally downward I can clearly see the single wall box because I am dragging that towards me too. It is not separating from the main unit or the stand-off.

But electrically speaking, the Channelplus and the Hive are just switches and are identical in their operation, so if your heating works with one, then there is no reason why it wouldn't work with the other.
