    I need some help with the Pocket Wizard Mini TT1 and Flex TT5. I have the TT1 on my 5D MK II's hot shoe and a 580EX on the TT5, i also have a 430EX i wish to fire at the same time using the 580EX to trigger it. I have the 580EX in switch on master mode and the 430EX on Slave mode but when i take a shot the pocket wizards just flash red lights once and the flashes do not go off.
    So basically my setup is:
    Camera + TT1 >triggers> TT5 + 580EX in master mode >trying to trigger> 430EX in slave mode

    I believe it is possible, as said on PW site.
    Wireless transmitters and receivers - Pocketwizard

    Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

    That's the rub, you can't trigger your 580 while it's in master mode with a Pocket Wizard.

    So basically if i wanted to trigger the 430EX i would need to go buy another TT5?

    That's my understanding. But you don't need another tt5 nessesarily, any pocket wizard should do the trick, depending on ur needs.
