I am trying to trigger my PX receiver, attached to a 580EX II, from a JRX. According to RadioPopper, this is possible and also allows usage of the group dials on the JRX to remotely adjust the power of the flash attached to the PX receiver.
Unfortunately, nothing is working for me.
I have a PX transmitter and receiver, a JRX transmitter and two JRX receivers. I can trigger the PX receiver with the PX transmitter and can also trigger either JRX receiver with the JRX transmitter. What I CAN'T do is trigger the PX receiver from the JRX transmitter.
If any of you have ever done this successfully, please give me a hand and tell me how it's done.
Based on how the PX receiver triggers the flash, I assume the 580EX has to be in slave mode, although I have tried all modes. I don't see how it could pick up a signal if it were in manual mode.
I have been on the phone with RP (one brief call that was interrupted) and they haven't been able to solve the problem yet. However, I am still not convinced I have them set up correctly.
A couple of other notes:
- The PX receiver has just been updated to the latest firmware, 6.06.
- The PX receiver is configured for Canon mode, not Nikon.
- Both the PX receiver and JRX transmitter are on the same channel, channel 1.
- I have tried groups 1, 2 and 3.
