Does anyone know if it is possible to record uncompressed onto Panasonic's new P2 recorder via the recorder's HD-SDI input using an HVX (and it's HDMI out)?

I take it you're talking about the HPG20? It doesn't do uncompressed. It's highest quality recording mode is AVC-Intra 100.
It only takes a HD-SDI in, so you'd need to get a HDMI to HD-SDI converter too.

To be perfectly honest given the incredible amount of storage uncompressed recording requires you'd be crazy to try and record this to P2 cards given their cost per GB.

If uncompressed recording is of vital importance to you, Convergent Design's Flash XDR will be able to record uncompressed with a future (chargeable) upgrade. Currently the XDR records a HD-SDI input to MPEG2 4:2:2 at up to 100Mbps long-GOP and 160Mbps I-Frame.

Alternatively the upcoming nanoFlash will offer HD-SDI and HDMI inputs, recording at these same high bitrates.
