  1. Thanks! This was the culprit. I don't know why I don't think of things like these receivers having firmware, but obviously, they do. Problem solved! I'm now on version 4 of the firmware. Tip for anyone else that needs to do this upgrade with windows 10: you need to disable driver signing before connecting the device to your computer. The device should be OFF. The Godox drivers are unsigned, probably because they don' want to pay Microsoft. Just Google "disable driver signing". It's cumbersome, but not difficult.
  2. Not a TTL issue, but a firmware issue on the R2. Thanks for your help.
  3. Sounds logical. I don't have another Sony camera to test with anymore. I've been scouring the interwebs and youtube for a solution. I contacted Adorama tech support via email this morning. I'll see what they say. The Flash works perfectly as an ON CAMERA flash. It just won't fire the remote R2 receiver with the camera's shutter button. Thanks.
  4. You are correct about the settings, though no setting seems to matter. I changed to full power with no change in results. I'm not trying to control the power of the second flash (I'll do that manually). All I want the flash to do is trigger the Flashpoint Reciever, which it does perfectly, till I put the flash on the Sony A7RIII. This is the other flash. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1079352-REG/interfit_str227_strobies_pro_flash_360_w_s.html and it is using this receiver: https://www.adorama.com/fprrr2rs.html When the Flashpoint Flash is NOT on the camera, pressing the test
  5. It is a Strobie. Shouldn't matter though, since it's fired by the R2 and the sync cable.
  6. I just bought the Flash for my Sony A7RIII. My intention is to use the Flash on camera to control the off-camera flash (another brand) with the R2 receiver. When the flash and R2 Reciever are set as shown in the attached image, they function as expected UNLESS I put the flash on the camera. Off Camera: 1. Turn everything on 2. Push the test button on the flash (orange button in the picture) 3. Both Flashes fire as expected Attach Flash to Camera: 1. Turn everything on 2. Push the test button on the flash 3. REMOTE flash ONLY fires 4. Press Shutter on Camera 5. CAMERA f
