I am new to bioinformatics and do not know how to retrieve "standard results" from ENCODE and how to visualize that in the UCSC Genome Browser, and then how to visualize User Track based on the BED regions MACs identified as peaks. Here is the result I'm currently getting:

And here are the BED regions MACs gave me back.

What oh what am I not doing/doing incorrectly?

BED files supplied to the genome browser with a numeric value for intensity are shown as shades of gray on the browser. Check out the "score" attribute here:

ENCODE uses wig and bigwig formats to display peaks. These are stored as actual .bigwig files in the mysql database, and I am not sure how the data translates to peaks internally - you may want to dig deeper into that.
