OM-D with Metz 50 AF-1 (Out-of-sync)

Hi All,
I tried to search about this, but couldn't find any definitive answers anywhere.
Here's my setup:

  • OM-D with the included mini-flash on the hot-shoe

-- hide signature --

> RC Mode on, with Group A (TTL) Channel 1 set in the camera RC menu

  • Metz 50 Af-1 in SL mode

--> Group A and channel 1 set in the flash

Result: the on-camera flash fires when I click the shutter, triggering the Metz (off-camera) flash fire as well...

But The problem is, I'm not able to get the off-camera idiot light to sync with my shutter I tried with all shutter speeds 1/160 (default sync speed) and below 1/125, 1/100..... 1/25, etc... But the Metz always fires away before the shutter opens

Anyone knows any additional settings required on either the camera or the Flash?
