No it can not.It looks like it has the hardware (USB,esata ports) but the firmware can not do it. You can hope that sometime in the future they may provide a firmware able to do it, but there is no promise or advertising about this. They still have to fix some bugs on 630 firmware, before they can think on adding new features. I'm sure if they add this feature (external recording) will be on both 630 and 605 - maybe first on 630.It all depends on other priorities for their firmware development team.
