Thanks... But two questions:
1. Since the LUX thermostat does not have a W but instead a W1 and a W2, I suppose that in both cases I connect to the W1?
2. In your pic #1, since the RC and the RH are bridged together in both the Braeburn and the LUX thermostats -can I connect to either the RC or RH on the LUX thermostat that is also bridged?

1. Since the LUX thermostat does not have a W but instead a W1 and a W2, I suppose that in both cases I connect to the W1?.........That is correct

2. In your pic #1, since the RC and the RH are bridged together in both the Braeburn and the LUX thermostats -can I connect to either the RC or RH on the LUX thermostat that is also bridged?.........Also correct.

Your biggest difference is on the one thermostst you have Y1 and Y2...on the TX these both go to Y
