I think you may have missed the point.
The original issue this thread started with was using Roxio's Creator 12 to burn a DVD from a TiVo file.
After a long, strange journey the last few posts in this thread return to that problem and - maybe - have been solved by just turning off the "Fast Transfer" option in TiVo Desktop.
