    I've confirmed it's working correctly now. Sending the STATUS message with ch_enable set to 1 is what it needed. The demand control into terminal 4 is working fine alongside the OpenTherm temperature...

    I've just spotted an error in my code. I was sending the SLAVE_CONFIG message instead of STATUS. I'll give it another try later and hopefully that might fix the issue.

    Do you think I need to do anything with terminals 7-8-9 on my boiler? At the moment there is nothing connected but I wondered if I need to loop any of these to make it fire up.

    I've been trying this out but I'm having some problems.
    Whilst the loop is applied to the VR33 OT connections then the boiler works fine in response to the 240V demand signal as it always did.

    No I'm using it to generate OT messages into the boiler (VR33 interface) e.g. set feed temperature and also to query data e.g. feed and return temperature. So it's acting instead of a thermostat.

    By the time I allow for postage etc then it works out very similar. That is a good suggestion though as that board is pretty small and so I could stick it underneath and bypass the OT part of my...

    That sounds perfect. Just to confirm in this arrangement - if I set the target temperature low enough the boiler will still turn off the pump (as you mentioned in an earlier post)?
