Does anyone know if it's safe to stack the Panasonic DST-50 STB on top of the HD-1000 recorder? Or is too much heat generated by the STB?

I did this, except i took the cover off the 50 and put a rack mount fan on top of it...to i have the HD1000, the 50 and then a fan blowing on the 50. It works great

Both of my TU-DST51/PV-HD1000 setups are like this.

One additional cooling tip: There is an extra aluminum shield pan glued into the top of the TU-DST50W to cut down on spurious electromagnetic radiation that would have not allowed this product to pass FCC Part 15 rules.

This aluminum pan, while doing an effective job of keeping radiation down, restricts the flow of air. I removed it entirely and my tuner runs a lot cooler now.
