Bypass the HDD on the Everio??

Is there any way of bypassing the Everio's HDD and recording directly to an external HDD?? I use FCP and I want to be able to hook up the Everio to my Mac via firewire and record straight to a HDD. What I do with my MiniDV cam is I have a MyBook HDD connected to my Mac via FireWire, then I connect my MiniDV to the MyBook's 2ND FireWire and it acts as a hub. Final Cut Pro recognizes both and I can do direct camera-to-HDD video recording. I want to be able to do this with my Everio and perhaps stay clear of the ~19min clip issue so I dont have breaks in my video. Any help with this? Thanks!

AS far as I know the Panasonic HVX200 does it and so do several other cameras which support firewire recording. The price is quite a bit more than the Everio.

The clipping issue is to do with file size not minute length. As far as I know that is one of the limitations of HDD addressing in that system. Did you test the SDHC format at all ?
