Default Help - Flash Problem

My flash fires off 3 times before finally syncing with the shutter on the fourth time. Any idea why this is happening? I've reset all my devices already. Never had this problem before.

Nikon D800
Yongnuo 568EX HSS flash
Yongnuo 622N Transceiver
Yongnuo 622N - TX controller in the hotshoe

Thanks
Charles

Redeye reduction is turned on or you are in commander mode.

Okay, I'll check on that, thanks.

What is commander mode?
On camera, flash, or controller?

Yes, it was my red eye reduction setting.

Problem solved.

Thanks so much!
