I must be missing something simple, but I can't get the MiniTT1/FlexTT5 combo to trigger my BX400's. Is there some critical setting that I may be missing?

I can press the Test button on the FlexTT5 connected to the strobe and it fires as expected. However, when I press the Test button on the MiniTT1, I can see a red light illuminate on the FlexTT5 showing that it is receiving a signal, but it doesn't trigger the strobe.

FYI, I've tried using both a standard channel and a ControlTL channel but neither seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

have you tested the combination with another flash/strobe to confirm the triggers work?

They seem to work fine with my SpeedLite flashes. And, as I said, the "Test" button on the FlexTT5 will fire the strobe so I know that the cord connecting them is OK. And, when I press the Test button on the MiniTT1, the indicator light on the FlexTT5 comes on showing that it is receiving the signal from the Mini. That is why I feel like I don't have something configured correctly in the software setup. If someone is using these with Elinchrom strobes and good spell out how it is configured in the software, I'd appreciate it.
