    I just got my CyberSyncs and they dont seem to be working. On my D90 I have the CST transmitter in my hot shoe and it's turned to channel 5. On my SB-800 I have the CSRB plugged into the PC port and turned to channel 5. I hit the test button on the receiver and the flash goes off. I hit the test on the transmitter and I get nothing. Is there a setting on my camera or flash I need to have on? Or do I just have a faulty transmitter?

    The receiver works fine, it pops the flash off every time. I have tried every channel with the transmitter, had it on and off the camera and nothing happens. It just isn't sending the signal.

    Double check the battery in the transmitter.

    I guess I'll go buy a battery on my lunch hour and give it a try. I don't think it's the battery though because in the manual it says the red LED will flash twice when the battery is low and the transmitter isn't doing that.
