Only way is to use a PC capture type card if it can play the recorded contents, if not there is no way.
There was a method but that only works for new recordings and not those already recorded and that doesn't help you. I think you can find out more at deal data base dot Com. Back in the day there was scripts and Ptvnet which would enable ethernet networking, install the Web server to it, hackmanager and allow transfers but that was a long time ago. Without encryption disabled prior to recording, there is nothing you can do.
