if you have the ffmpeg utility
available you might try the following which has worked for me (I'm not sure if it can convert wmv files or not though, I was converting avi files).
ffmpeg -y -i "$input" -target ntsc-dvd -acodec copy -async 1 -aspect 16:9 -qmin 2 -qmax 9 -qscale 1 -sameq "$output"
$input should be the input file name (e.g. movie.avi) and $output the output filename (e.g. movie.mpg)
This produced an mpeg-2 file which the TiVo could fast-forward and rewind, I had created others where the TiVo would play the file but couldn't navigate it.
