This (subscription required) should move some holiday hardware.

The Wall Street Journal reports TiVo plans to enable transfers of recorded programming to the new video iPod. That will greatly expand the amount of TV programming avaiilable for the device,as well as give TiVo an edge over competitive DVRs — at least for the time being. It may also give the new portable video player a nice little jumpstart for the holidays.

The whole thing will be complicated and time-consuming, at least at the outset. “The whole process of getting an hour-long show onto an iPod could take more than two hours from the time a TiVo device finishes recording it,” says the WSJ.

iPodded TiVo programming will contain ads, unlike the ad-free Disney shows sold on the iTunes at $1.99 a pop.
