If you expect the NSLU2 to be the rendering device you might as well forget it.
Maybe others have had better luck then I, but I have only been able to get NSLU2 to serve content not to do on-the-fly transcoding.
As I no longer have a Tivo, I am not familiar with its client/server capabilities.
Does the Tivo work with UPnP?
Tversity, which runs on your PC, might be an alternative if you truly need on-the-fly transcoding.
