You're inferring that it's intuitive to use different HC/UCs.

But if you're trying to control A1 - it's intuitive to use A1 - not something else.

It's like saying people automatically know that to make a motorcycle steer, you exert pressure on the handlebars counter to the direction you want to go.

Good analogy.  Most people who are learing how to ride a motorcycle know how to steer from riding a bicycle so it seems intuitive, but if you have never ridden a bicycle it might not be so obvious.

They tough part about teaching is forgetting what is obvious to you and thinking like a beginner.

stan,

The only thing I was pointing out was, the major cause of the drawn out resolution was the lack of information.
Not having the complete information on your installation (House Codes / Unit Codes). 

On the lighter side:
As far as being intuitive, I am a Jr.
A long time ago my mother would call out the name Bill looking for my father, and we would both answer her.
So to avoid the conflict and confussion, from then on I was "addressed" as Billy.   :)

Glad your system is up and working as it was designed to.
