Just go to panasonic's website and order it. The 51 module remote will cost about $50. I order a 50 module remote and firewire for the PV-HD1000
I believe I checked out the Panasonic firewire for my
PV-HD1000 that I bought from Ebay and arrived without
the cable. They wanted something like $80, as I recall.
I realized that was bizarre, and just went to my local
computer store (Micro Center) and bought a 1-meter
4-pin to 4-pin firewire (the PV-HD1000 and DST50 use that
version of 1394 connector, not the 6-pin version). I even
decided to go with the "generic" firewire instead of the
Monster version, as it was 1/2 the price.
Works perfectly... and cost about $6! It's a computer
firewire cable, and shouldn't cost $80. Panasonic is
truly overcharging on this one.
