Just playing with my elinchrom d lites that just arrived. Since they have built in skyport receivers, I was trying to make them work with a El-Skyport speed transmitter. Not a chance in hell. I had the settings all correct (r-1, g-1, f-1) etc. and can make them fire using the sync CORD and/or the photo cell, no problem. So in reading on the Elinchrom website, it appears that I need the Skyport ECO transmitter, not the El Skyport Speed. Huh? I already had to buy a Skyport UNIVERSAL receiver to "talk" to my canon flashes. So now I have to buy the ECO too?
I only planned on using the two d lites for background lighting, so I could always just use the photo cell function to trigger them off the Ranger/Octa main lights, but I'm very frustrated in not being able to trigger them with the El Skyport Speed transmitter.
