Does anyone know if the flash/flahes will fire if you plug a third party reciever into the remote release terminal and use the third party transmitter?

That terminal on the SRT-E3-RT is for connecting it to a camera's shutter control terminal - in the same way that you would connect any remote release (e.g. RS 80N3) to the camera.  Then you trigger the camera from another flash that is talking to the SRT-E3-RT - or so it reads; I have not tired it.

 

I initially thought the same thing - that I could do what you are saying to integrate the Canon flash into another system, but the SRT-E3-RT user manual says no - it is a shutter release connection terminal.

 

What might work is connecting brandx receiver to the PC Terminal on a 600EX-RT set as Master that would in turn trigger Slaves 600s.  I have not tried that, but might be worth a go...
