I may be wrong, but have the AC3, and 758DR. I just upgraded the PW radio in my 758DR to trigger my TT5's. New model just came out a few months ago and now the 758DR/PW trigger the Control TL channels. A,B, or C groups. Tested w/ my own.

EDIT - link to RT-32CTL (model) in sekonic blog:

Hope that helps someone looking at investing in PW's and Sekonic meter (besides the new 458DR - which is good looking!)
