400D plus 580EX II plus 2x multiblitz 400W HELP!

Hi,

See subject for what I use. I can't get this combo to work. I thought my on camera 580 (as master)would trigger strobes at the right time but the frame stays black apart from bounce flash from 580. So strobes probably fire to soon. Why? And what would solve the problem?

I obviously want the 580 off camera and use for example as hair light or background light. Is there a suitable sync cable (long) for this setup or am I better off buying the ST-E2 transmitter to solve all problems OR another 580 ex/580exII??

(Lenses 10-22mm real estate or 17-85mm portrait/general)

Thanks for feedback, I am desperate for it.
Martine
