The URLs you're using above are for website access via a browser.  You need
streaming URLs here.

I notice the streamlink project [https://streamlink.github.io/] has a
plugin for SVT.  If you can install that and then by using either of the
URLs you're using above, to get a video stream played, then you could look
at using streamlink in conjunction with MythTV's external recorder
functionality [https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/ExternalRecorder].  That seems
like a reasonable way forward to me.

Cheers, Ian
