Depends on the make/model of the DVR. Most of them have a video output which can be connected directly to a local television, but few that I know of include modulation which allows you to view them on any television in your home. Most CCTV systems these days are Ethernet enabled which allows you to view and control them from a IP enabled device, such as a computer, or a smart phone.
The exact make and model of the DVR would be of immense value, perhaps along with a photo or two of the unit.
Without more information, there is not a ton of information which can be provided other than general guesses.
Likewise, your home 'distribution' panel is likely a standard coaxial/network version which is not really designed for this to provide much integration capability.
