DVR recovery can be very difficult as there's no standard format they use. If you're lucky, it might be a linux box and you can read the data using Linux or using data recovery software like R-Studio to extract the video files. However, more often the data is stored in a proprietary format with embedded metadata in a continuous stream with no discernable file system. In such a case you could try this software: http://dmeforensics.com/Technology/DVRExaminer

But the price is absurd.

I'm pretty sure that we just recently completed a WFS recovery a couple of weeks ago.

I agree, I tried that and it did quite a good job.
