When they passed the firewire law, they were thinking about cable and forgot
sat. So your only real option is painfully expensive -
Looks like their 'sale prices' are about $800, plus (usually) the AVX1 for
$400. (Or get them to upgrade your receiver for $600 plus the AVX1.) If you
are fond of hand-soldering to surface mount chips, the DIY kits are $400.
Reports are that they work great, but ymmv. I've been glaring at that page
and my bank statement off and on for a while now :)
