How do I wire my Rain Bird Sprinkler Timer?

They mention common wire,valve hot wires, but not enough to know about the lead wires…

Electrical Question from Clint about Electrical Wiring
Question: I have purchased a Rain Bird 408 ISA Series Sprinkler Timer – Please help me with correct wiring instructions from the wall/wiring to the device- their instructions do not cover basic info that I require. They mention common wire,valve hot wires, but not enough to know about the lead wires/ black, white,etc. Where does the ground wire go? No info provided.

Additional Comments: videos would be great, more basics for real beginners.
