With the MX600 the blue wire can be used for connecting a stay alive, but the ground connections are pretty awkward to solder to. I've done a few, but ruined one so I now use the MX617F where the pads are easy to solder to.

The other wires I will cut off but leave a short length (insulated) so that I can connect to them in future if I decide to add lights.
Whats puzzling me is that although the connector is 8 pin there are 9 wires, the 9th being brown.
My question is if I need to add a stay alive am I right in saying I need the blue wire which I think is +V
and does the other wire on the stay alive connect to the pad at the back of the decoder or to the brown wire which as far as I can make out is -V
