However, I'm installing the track lights where there is an older box a few feet away (which was covered over).
I attached the lights to the wires in the old box, but didn't get power. The power down the room to another set of overhead lights doesn't work either.
Is there something I need to do to the old wires to get electricity down to the other wires is the older box?
Should I connect the white and black wires showing in the photo?
