Has any pentaxian got the flash wave iii working on k20?

Hi everyone,

Has anyone got their flash wave iii transceiver working on their k20 to manually firer receiver on af-540 fgz?

*I've made sure the camera works wirelessly with slave flash with the camera flash up.
* I've checked the transceiver firers the flash through the receiver
* the set up work fine with my olympus om-d
* I change the setting to off wireless setting on camera mount the flash wave which the camera should think is the flash right?

I know the answer is going to be either flash wave iii doesn't work with pentax or I've not changing something to make it work.

And yes everything is on lol

Hope someone can point me in the right direction

Regards from blighty

a bit of a long shot, but is your shutter speed over 1/180s by any chance?
