Pocket wizards + shutter remote = not triggering (5d2)

I've been using my shutter remote for about a week now and it's been going great! I recently got a 580exii flash for my 5d2 however after setting it up with the pocket wizards tt5 and tt1 combo for wireless use, my 5d only takes commands from the remote sometimes. It's very strange. If the flash is off or directly mounted to the hot shoot it works fine. If anyone has a solution, I'm all ears. Thanks guys!

More details:

Only using one flash off camera (580exii)
Tt1 mounted on 5d
Tt5 mounted to flash
Remote is in plain site. Tried all angles. I usually have to physically press the shutter once to be able to use the remote. Shutter button on camera activates every time though
