tivo-to-go file size to treo 700p

ok, so I am thinking about buying plus so I can watch tivo on my phone. Since the treo only will take a 2gb card (or is it 4gb), was wondering if anyone can tell me the sizes of the TTG files for portable devices. Is it the same - smaller, bigger?
anyone, buller?....

series 2 80 hr lifetime
series 2 DT 80 hr lifetime - making dust bunnies
series 2 80 hr Humax DTR-800 retired
Series 3 cable card with lifetime
Series 4 Premiere monthly
Series 5 Plus lifetime

For the 700p, a 4GB card will work. (For the 650, the limit is 2GB unless you install a FAT32 driver.) I don't know file sizes, but the files will be MPEG4, I think, not to mention reduced pixel count, so you should be able to get quite a few hours out of a 4GB card.

I expect it to be similar to iPod video files, which are often MPEG4. Looking at some files I have, a 1hr8m "This Week in Tech" MPEG4 video is 151MB. You can extrapolate from there.
