Technically, I suppose any format pyTivo can support, which is probably anything ffmpeg can decode, which is a huge list.
However, to avoid pyTivo (using ffmpeg) having to transcode videos, which can be slow... .mpg, .mp4, and .TiVo work fine. I think .ts should work too. Maybe ask in the pyTivo thread.
I think any of the output from kmttg, whether it is simply a transfer, or that plus decode, or that plus encode, should work.
