I have four of these, and work well in getting the flashes to fire from my D600. However, using the SU-800 on top on the transceiver that is on top of the camera, I can't vary the flashes output. Everything is in manual mode. I've also tried with just the tranceiver on top of the camera, and with an SB900 on top of the transceiver on top of the camera.
I've read and re-read the manuals, triple checked everything, and watched tutorials and read vids on line.
So, if you are just using a single speedlight with one yongnuo on the camera hot shoe and the other on your speedlight, how do you set your menu? Do you set it on TTL or do you set it in commander mode with your light on TTL group A? Thanks in advance. Mike

If you are using a speedlight on top of a YN-622, that speedlight has to be a Commander if you want to control the remote speedlight from the camera without using the YN-622 as TTL commnader (PITA).
The commander in the camera is a CLS commander, and uses optical signals and does not command through the YN TTL commander - they are separate systems.
Since I don't know what speedlights you are using and you don't have them in your profile, I will have to make some assumptions.
If you have a SB-910/900, use that as the flash that is mounted on the YN-622 that is on the camera. Use it as a commander. Be aware that a SB-800 does not work as commander.
Any of the regular Nikon flashes (SB-910/900/800/700/600) can act as a remote on the receiver YN-622. Leave the flash in TTL mode, do not set it to Remote mode.
All of the channels and groups have to be set on the YN-622's, and the Commander flash should be matched up to the same channel and group.
Thanks for your response David, I have an SB910 and an SB700 speedlight. I really prefer to not have a speedlight on my camera while shooting. I do a lot of manual flash and only some TTL. I would like to have control over my flashes from the camera instead of walking ovbe to them and mode and flash power. Anyhow thanks again for your knowledgeable advice. PS I really like that Georgia landscape in your gallery. Mike
