If you can get the drive out of the DVR that would be your easiest solution. 
Hook it up temporarily to the box where you're going to dump the video, then 
just use rsync or similar to copy the files over, no need to bother Myth.

Getting all your recordings out of a box by streaming video sounds painful. How 
many hours do you have? Remember, it will take you exactly that many hours to do 
the transfer, and the quality will degrade, guaranteed.

Yank the hard disk and have done with it. Remember to mount it read only :)
