Hello,

I am having issues getting my flash and receiver to connect without having to stack them up on one another (flashes' hotshoe is connect physically to receiver's hotshoe, then receiver connected to the umbrella adapter/swivel bracket). It works fine, but it's a bit flimsy feeling, and I would rather just have the flash unit connected directly to the umbrella adapter, and then I can just strap the receiver somewhere on the lightstand.

What do I Need to connect the receiver to the Flash? They gave me a PC cable, but it goes into a minijack which neither the flash or the receiver have. They only have a PC port. So, I have two PC ports (one on flash, one on receiver) and have no way to connect them unless they can operate with a PC to PC cable if there is such a thing?

Thanks in advance for the help

You answered your own question. If both devices have a PC connector then it is a PC to PC cord. Here is a good source with a very helpful person running the store. Just ask Lon and he will fix you up with what you need.
