[MacDV] Transferring Dish DVR to PB?

Anybody know a good way to transfer recorded programming from a Dish Network
DVR into my PowerBook? I'm leaving on a weeklong trip and would like to
catch up on some programming I've saved.

The DVR has 4 outputs: a 62-pin "Expansion Port," a standard TV connection,
an S-Video connection, and a red/white/yellow RCA connection. Dish Network
tech support says it can't be done, of course. I'm guessing for a few
hundred dollars, Eye TV could do it, but that's a bit costly for watching a
few TV shows. Anybody know another way?
