7 Day programmable timer instal help

Post by zoey » Tue Nov 11, 2008 9:55 pm

So, I've got this 7 day programmable timer sitting on the counter top. Unfortunately, it did not come with instructions on how to/where to hook the thing up to my Mini.

Can anyone instruct me on how to do this? If there are any pictures available, it would be a huge help.

The programming instructions are there, but I don't see anything for installation. Chaz indicates that there are no such instructions.

I'll call Chris's today.

at least on the vii, theres a coiled up wire sort of beneath or a bit to the left of the pressure guage that you access by taking off the front panel; this wire attaches to the timer; also on the vii, there is a swith towards the back on the right side next to the 20/15 amp swith that is timer on/off; you can access this switch by taking off the top 8)

What's the word on the timer? It goes for $195 (which seems nuts...I can get an Xbox for that price).

I like the idea but not the price. Is there a cheaper source? Homemade version? Price drop coming?

So whatever happened with the Bulgarian boards? Did he ever build any timers for other owners? I think my timer is still the best as it(she) also airs the dog, gets my butter out of the fridge AND turns on the Vivaldi every morning.

I think John has the best timer.
I'd get a PS3 instead of the Xbox since you can play Bluray movies on it ;-)
