Default Question for Pocket wizard users (580 EX II)

Hi I just purchased the flex TT5 and Mini TT1, when in manual flash mode the distance scale seems all messed up and I have no clue is to why, when it tells me I need to be 7ft from flash to subject and I take the picture it comes out way to over exposed like pure white, then I took the pocket wizards off and used on camera flash and the distance meter showed me I needed to be 30ft from flash to subject, why is it doing that? I also purchased the Metz 58 AF 2 and that flash is right on with the pocket wizards in manual flash mode, but I can't get the metz to work in ETTL is there a way for the metz to also work in ETTL with the pocket wizards? thanks for your help.
