No ceiling ground.
Yes, the single red is a bitch and the switches are complicated as hell lutron systems.
The problem is that my wife called an electrician in who came in and said, "this is simple and I will charge you too much" then looked at me. My wife is out of town and I have 6 days to devote my life to figuring this fucker out.
Unfortunately, the fixture is too heavy and unwieldy for me to get it up and try various wiring configurations. Need to get to right the first time.
The linked site doesn't seem to address my situation.
My advice would be to pull the three way switches out and see which wires are connected where. You could spread those wires coming from the ceiling, so nothing shorts, then turn the power back on and see which wires get hot when you flip the switches. Then you can figure out what should go where.
The main switch is a Crestron controller with six lighting zones as well as independent control for all the window shades. There's no fucking way I'm pulling that off the wall.
Assuming I determine which are hot, (my circuit tester needs batteries) then is this simply a matter of all the hots together and all the neutrals together?
It's probably safe to cap the red and hook a test bulb up like Matt suggested and see how it works.
The guy came back to fix it today claimed it was a result of his repair from last time. I'm not sure I understood it all, but some emergency shut-off was reading wrong or was too close to the heat source, and therefore cutting off the furnace prematurely.
At least it's warm in here now.
