You're not making any sense.  Each host that runs mythtv has its own 
RecordFilePrefix setting.  You could even manually set a field for the 
machine you want to run nuvexport on and not have mythtv installed.

The whole point of nuvexport is that it pulls show names, etc. from the

That might be an acceptable addition.  However, so much of nuvexport 
relies upon an installed version of mythtv (for database login info, 
etc).  You don't actually need mythtv to be installed on the same host 
that nuvexport runs on, but you do need it to be CONFIGURED.
