Use nuvexport's nuv/sql option. It'll extract the recording plus  
relevant sql data into a folder which you copy over to the target  
machine. Put the nuv/mpg files into your tv directory and send the  
*.sql files into a mysql session and that's it.

When extracting be sure to use a directory on the same filesystem as  
your tv folder - that way nuvexport will use hard links instead of  
copying 150gb of stuff.
