Actually I wasn't talking about the switch that reads off/on/remote/master. Of course that needs to be set to remote. I was talking about the button on the side of the flash (SB700), that reads TTL/M/GN. What is this set to if I want to use the D800 power settings while using the built in as commander?

It does not matter when the flash is in "Remote" mode.

The M on the flash and M in commander mode for each group confuse me, not sure which one take precedence over the other, and how they work with each other?

The TTL/M/GN switch on the side of the SB-700 has no effect when the flash is set to "Remote". When the flash is in "Remote" mode, all settings except the zoom value are set at the camera, and transmitted to the flash by the commander.

Thank you for confirming this!
