Are you triggering the strobe seperately or does the flash sensor pick up the flash from the 580. Also if you using 2 strobes, will triggering one work based on what you have done so far or just use 3 triggers. So they are separate.
I am triggering the strobes (Einstein and AB800) via radio, so no, they don't pick up the flash from the 580EXII. The 580EXII fires via the hot shoe and the strobes fire via the CST (attached to the 580EXII via Velcro) connected to the 5D2's PC Sync port.
For the AB800, I have a cable plugged in to it with nothing on the other end, which bypasses the optical trigger. I have a CSRB+ receiver hooked up via phone jack. I have the trigger that goes into the built-in socket on the Einstein and have the optical trigger turned off IIRC.
I can set up groups via the Cyber Commander I suppose. Never really tried that. I always have the 2 strobes firing away. I never move the strobes either. I might remotely change the power settings once in a while via the Cyber Commander.
Working well for me so far.
