Sony A9 compatibility with ShutterBoss II by Vello

I recently purchased a Sony A9 camera. I ordered a Vello ShutterBoss II shutter release cable from BH. It didn't seem to work properly so I ordered another one and I am having the same problem.

I have connected it to the camera and when I push the shutter release button the camera does not attempt to focus or take a picture (however it does wake from sleep mode when I push the shutter release button, so I know it is connected properly).

Also, if I push the timer start/stop button it will take a picture.

Lastly, if I change my drive mode to timer on the camera the shutter release button on the remote will operate (but this doesn't do me any good for when I want to shoot in bulb or any continuous shooting mode).

Am I missing something here?

Thanks in advance.
