Update to the latest firmware if you have a Metabones Speedbooster
I have tested the remote with the metabones speedbooster and it works. However, there different models so I cannot guarantee it will work with all of them. I had an instance where focus was not working on a speedbooster but this was fixed by updating the firmware on that particular speedbooster.
