Doorbell Installation Issue: Old Doorbell had 4 wires instead of 2

I am trying to install my Video Doorbell Pro, however have run into an issue in that the old doorbell at our new home has 4 wires (white, red, green & black) instead of 2.  I have tried all of the possible combinations of these 4 wires and have yet to get any response from the doorbell.  Has anyone encountered a similar situation and been able to install the doorbell?

@ktgerloff​ hi! The Video Doorbell Pro is unfortunately compatible only with analog/mechanical doorbells. Do you happen to have one that is digital?

@Jimbo ​ The requirements for the Video Doorbell Pro have not changed. It does still need to be installed with an analog/mechanical doorbell.

@Andymydock​ Do you know if you have a digital doorbell or digital chime box? The Video Doorbell Pro is only compatible with wired doorbells that have a mechanical chime.
