Thought I did that, but it only fired the last flash that was attached. When I get home Ill try pressing the shutter with each flash, maybe I did not do that. Thanks for the reply.

I believe this just sets the channel on them, and that can be done through the menu also, I think (I've never tried).  I used to have two of these, and I'm pretty sure I've used them both at the same time successfully. It is possible that maybe the camera is switching "channels" when you go from setting one to the other, and you should be able to check that on somewhere on the flash's menu to make sure they are the same.

But, if each works independently (you have verify it's not just one that doesn't work at all?) I can't think why else they wouldn't work together.
