Hmm its a bit late for the weekend now, but here are some of my thoughts.
Using the SB800 off camera it has to be in remote mode with the channel and group set according to the camera (which can't be changed) A3 rings a bell. The camera flash must be in commander mode. (Apologies if this is teaching you to suck eggs).
To use the camera flash or the SB800 (mounted on the hotshoe) to trigger the main lights, the flash must be in manual (not TTL etc mode) as the pre-flashes used by the metering will trigger the externals.
Hope this helps.
