I have been using the Cyber Commander for a few months now, and I absolutely love the flash meter function and the digital control. I would prefer to use it as a handheld meter, and keep it in my pocket or off camera. I have been under the impression that I can use the Commander and the CST2 in conjunction. One fires, the other controls. Is this assumption correct? Does anyone do this in practice?

This is totally doable, and we generally recommend this, as it is more convenient, and gives you a smaller device on the camera.

After my last post, I did some shooting with the setup I had mentioned earlier. CST2 in the Hot Shoe, Commander beside me. I soon after began to have many of the problems that other Cyber Commander owners are suffering from. Rapid firing from all of the lights, and the CC resetting itself often. I tried several pairs of fresh batteries. I tried shooting with the MiniSD in, and also removed the MiniSD and shot with my setup saved under Internal 1. I bent the battery contacts to ensure a tight fit. Nothing seems to work. The oddest part is, the lights will continue to rapid fire, even after I have pulled the batteries out of the CC. All of the slaves were turned off, what could cause all of this?

I wonder if it has anything to do with my setup? I have (at maximum) 4 White Lighting x1600's with CSR+'s, and 1 Einstein with CSXCV. Are the white lightnings or CSR+'s more problematic than Einsteins?

My CC was bought brand new from PCB within the last 3 months or so, so I am assuming it shouldn't need any servicing. I have been having issues with it almost from day one. I have to say I was incredibly enthusiastic about using this genius tool, but I am sorely disappointed, as many other seem to be. I am determined not to give up yet! Help me out Tech Support!
