I wanted to find out if it's possible to enact this iTTL on-camera and manual off-camera scenario for reception photography and, if so, what I'm doing wrong...

I just switched from Radiopoppers to PWs and would like to use my iTTL/SB900 on-camera, as well as a few manual-mode (Yongnuo YN560-II and SB600) speedlights off-camera. I have the FlexTT5 sandwiched between my SB900 and D700, with PlusIIIs are triggering the Yongnuos by PC cord/SB600 by hot-shoe adapter.

So... I can get the FlexTT5 to trigger the PlusIII/manual flashes while the SB900 is _off_ the FlexTT5. But, the second I mount the SB900 onto the FlexTT5's shoe, I can no longer trigger the Yonguos nor SB600 - the SB900 iTTL on-camera works fine.

After messing around with the PW Utility for some time, I am at a loss... any PW wizards out there that can help?

Thanks in advance,
