Jquery slideshow conflict

I’ve been using a lot of slideshows recently on my sites and one thing thats puzzled me is using more than one slideshow per page. I’m currently working on my own site, experimenting with Jquery Accordion. I’ve managed to adopt a very simple javascript slideshow, see below:


However i’m unable to either incorporate or use a different multiple slideshow plugin. I dont need slideshow navigation, so the The Cycle plugin works really well and i know you can use multiple slideshows. But if i either use Cycle alongside the current javascript slideshow, or only use the Cycle slideshow to avoid any possible conflict, the Accordion menu stops working as in the examples below. I just cant see what i am doing wrong, can anyone help?
