Jinbei/Caler TRS-V , how to use two at once

Hi everyone on the forum,

I recently purchased two Jinbei/Caler ECD-V 1000 monolights and two fitting Jinbei TRS-V remote triggers. Both are great btw, they seem well built and very reliable so far.

These remotes are pretty basic, you can only pick a channel between 0 and 15, control the flash output and of course trigger the flash. There is no option to fire two different flashes on different channels.

Since I need to control the output on my two monolights independently, I bought two TRS-V remotes and set the to two different channels, so one remote only controls one flash.

My idea was to mount both remotes on this dual hot shoe:

Even though this seems simple, it doesn't work for unknown reasons. If I attach both remotes, only one flash fires (no matter if I try the left or right shoe).

So, my question: can you think of another system that allows me to attach two remote triggers to one camera hot shoe, and trigger them simultaneously?

best,

geb
