Cant understand how sb-80dx nikon flash works

Hi all,

I have problem learning to use my nikon sb-80dx and I am really having problem learn to use it.

I have read the manual here:

and is not very clear the workflow.

I want to be using the flash in full manual mode:

1. I do not understand how I can change flash output because some times the buttons change flash output and some other times change just the exposure compensation

2. Once I set the flash to work with wireless remote (another flash) I loose the controls I have in manual mode.

3 I want to do something very simple have this flash working remotely and being triggered by flash light and at the same time being able to change zoom, aperture and power.

Can someone help me see what might be the problem?
