That unit doesn't even have network access for pulling software updates, 
much less for accessing content from other devices.  A brief glance 
through the manual doesn't even show that the hard drive is intended to 
be user serviceable.  I highly doubt it's just going to play random 
video files it finds on the hard drive.  It's going to need the content 
referenced in some internal database to provide information about what 
it is, where it is, and when it was recorded.  It's the same reason why 
MythTV does not accept arbitrary files into its recording section, but 
instead requires that content be accessed through MythVideo.

In any case, I fail to see how this would have any relevance to MythTV, 
other than the comment that the recordings originated from a MythTV 
system.  MythTV is intended specifically such that you don't have to use 
such devices.  I doubt you will find anyone around here with much 
experience with yours in particular.
