The TiVo itself has a very restricted set of codecs it can play. If anything, it's probably a narrower set than DLNA.
Except for MP3s, which it handles rather poorly, everything the TiVo plays back relies on hardware decoding. To get broad-spectrum format support, you pretty much need software decoding. And the TiVo just doesn't have the CPU power to do that in real time.
The reason why something like pyTivo is a major project is that it spends most of its effort massaging the diverse media formats on your PC into forms that the TiVo will accept.
