Remote Shutter Release for 645Z

Last evening I attempted to use a brand new Ricoh 0-RC1 Remote Shutter Release with my 645Z and couldn't get it to work
I used one all the time with my 645D with no problems at all
Is this a compatibility issue or pilot error?

I use the remote on my 645Z and it works fine; just as well when I had the 645D. I usually just leave the drive in remote mode with the front & rear LEDs blinking and I can still use it handheld if needed.

The only issue I had was when it got chilly at night recently, not too bad, but around 45-50F and my remote stopped working completely. Once I got it back to room temperature, it's worked fine since.

I have had a similar problem with the CS-205 cable release, temperature drops and it gets balky as hell

Works like a charm with the 645Z. Love the entire process.
