Unless the TiVo from which you are transferring the program is also a Pioneer unit you will not be able to record the transferred program to DVD. The format used on the older units is not compatible with DVD.

What matters is how the program was originally recorded.

If it was originally recorded on the Pioneer, it's possible to send it to a Series 2 unit on the network and delete it from the Pioneer. You can watch the program on the Series 2. At a later time, you could send it back to the Pioneer and still record it to DVD -- because it was originally recorded using the DVD-compatible encoding scheme.

(At least I think this is correct. I haven't actually tried this yet)
