Trick For MJPEG Or H.264 To Think Its MPEG4

I'm installing a spare Pelco DX8100 to replace a Pelco DX4700 that gave up the ghost. The 8100 is only a temporary fix as we are getting an Lenel NVR eventually. The system consist of analog fixed cameras, and two Pelco IMP219-1ER IP cameras.

The DX8100 can accept IP cameras and record their streams, but it only accepts MJPEG or MPEG4 camera streams. The IMP219-1ER only streams in MJPEG and H.264. I know I can obviously use the MJPEG stream to record into the DX8100, but is there a way to "trick" the DX8100 into accepting the H.264 stream and record it?

I also know the camera takes SD cards, which I'll probably end up doing, but I'm interested in recording in H.264 if possible.
