Canon 6D PC cord issue...

I photograph Weddings and my original lighting set-up for receptions was as follows:

Canon 7D

Alien B800

Off-camera Vivitar 286 (Sometimes I switch this out for the Canon EX580.)

On-camera Canon EX600

I'm using cyber sync triggers and Eneloop batteries.

I've recently switched to the Canon 6D which we all know lacks a PC sync connection. How do I keep the same lighting set-up with the Canon 6D. A friend was telling me I should switch over to cactus triggers or Yongnuo but I don't think either of these will fire my Alien B. :/ Is there something I need to add/replace in order to get this setup working? It worked perfectly with the 7D.

I used a PC adapter on the hotshoe during the last wedding I shot and it worked for 2 frames and then decided not fire anything anymore. :/

Suggestions? TIA!
