There is a animated graphic on wikipedia that illustrates what I am trying to say:

Well I wired it to the way the PCB creator says to. But he also says it wasn't designed for this version of DDC, and I haven't been able to find anyone else besides me who has attempted it.

So you are saying I should just inverse the wires from the PCB to the coils? I guess I could give that a shot since it really doesn't cost me anything.
