HS50EXR Lightning Trigger Problem

I bought a lightning trigger for my HS50.  The manufacturer sent me the item with a cable that only fits the microphone input, not the usb trigger port.

He insists that "per Fuji" it will work, but I have been unable to get it to do anything in the mic port.

I believe the mic port is dedicated to microphones only in the HS50, even though some other Fuji's are able to trigger using the mic connection.

It sounds to me that he's unfamiliar with the HS50 and is thinking more along the X series.

I have a wireless remote that once plugged into the usb port, works fine.

Any thoughts on this?
