I think they actually stated it not very well.. (Plus, I would skip the "edit out commercials" part..)
You can download (non copy protected, of course) programs with kmttg..
Then you can use *itunes* to get the videos to VLC. Hook iPad to computer, open itunes, select ipad in sidebar, switch to apps tab, scroll to bottom.. it will show a list of apps.. click on VLC, then drag file to the right column.
Sounds like a lot of steps, but it's easy.
This means you don't have to convert the program to an iPad compatible video type too, since VLC will play it.. (But e.g. your iPad will use more power than if you did have a Tivo Stream and compatible Tivo.. since the video would already be iPad compatible then.)
I've been using VLC lately to play Olympics while I walk on my treadmill... and play slightly faster than realtime. I intend to keep using it to play things like talk shows and documentaries faster than realtime too.
I wish the Tivo app would do that natively, then it would skip the download + VLC steps..
