Presuming that the mythtv (the host machine) setup you will be using is 
on the same lineup, you can update the host with:

mysqldump -u mythtv -pmythtv mythconverg --tables credits oldprogram 
people program programgenres programrating > /keep/mysqlzap.txt

And restore on your disconnected machine with

mysql -u mythtv -pmythtv mythconverg < /keep/mysqlzap.txt

where the file is transferred by USB memory key, writeable CDROM, SD 
memory card etc. etc.

The referenced tables will be replaced on the disconnected machine.

I used this method for over a year with my mythbox, using a setup at 
work to download using mythfilldatabase and a USB key.
