Elinchrom Skyport Trigger on Lumix GH2 Hotshoe Help

Hi guys,

I was wondering if I could get your help please.

I have bought an Elinchrom RX One Strobe Softbox set, which comes with the Skyport trigger for the Strobes.  The trigger works fine on it's own, and when mounted on the GH2 hotshoe, it still works, probably because it is battery operated.

However I cannot get the GH2 to recognize the Skyport trigger when pressing the Shutter button. When I press the Shutter there is no Flash from the Strobes at all.

Would anyone know if I am doing something wrong and it does actually work, or does the Skyport trigger not work with the GH2?  Or could the Skyport trigger or the Hotshoe be defective?

Thanks in advance,
