Unfortunately the TiVo won't do what you want. Even if you tricked it into thinking that it should display the svideo (without removing its ability to handle your normal TV signal at the same time), there would be two problems.

First and largest the TiVo buffers everything. This adds around a second of latency between the input video and the output video of the TiVo. Now for normal TV this usually isn't a problem, you don't care that there is a slight delay as long as everything is in sync. But for video games that delay makes them unplayable. Every button press you make is in response to something that happened a second ago.

The second issue is that the TiVo can only handle one input video stream at once, so if you were using the svideo non of your season passes would be able to record.
