Is HDMI output still uncompressed when recording internally on SD cards?

Or is the camera sending AVCHD compressed signal out its HDMI output?

I understand that while in standby mode, the live output from HDMI is uncompressed 4:2:2. But wanted to make sure that it is still the case once the camera begins recording AVCHD on its SD cards.

I am going to be using an external recorder for my main recordings, but if the HDMI output is always uncompressed 4:2:2 (wether recording internally or not) then I could record simultaneously internally and on the external recorder. This way I could use the internally recorded AVCHD files as proxies for offline.

Thanks.

The live video from the HDMI port is always uncompressed 4:2:2. When the camera is recording to the SD card the live video is the same as when its not recording.
