Those cannot be transferred because they are marked as "copy once" and the TiVo recording them is considered the one copy. This is a flag that is set by your cable company and although it should be reserved for shows that the producers consider to be copy protected, is often applied to almost everything by some cable companies. Time Warner is a particularly bad actor in this respect, but some other cable companies are just as bad.
