Z9 & Elinchrom EL-Skyport Transmitter Firing Issues

I have had strobe firing issues with my Z9 cameras (2).

I use Elinchrom strobes in-studio all the time with my Nikon D850, and the strobes all fire with no issues.  (ELC500/ELB500/ELB400/Quadras). When I pair any Z9 with either of the two (2) Elinchrom EL-Skyport transmitters, the strobe firing is hit & miss.  What is odd is that when the strobes do not fire when I hit the shutter, I can fire all the strobes when I push the button on the transmitter.

This seems to be a Z9/Elinchrom EL-Skyport issue. (It happens with both Z9's & both transmitters). All firmware is up to date.  I used fresh batteries. I cleaned the transmitter/camera contacts. I changed frequencies.

Does anyone else have this issue?
