If i recall correctly, the file size of the original Tivo recording will be somewhere around 7 gigs per hour.
However, you can compress this so that it takes up less space on the ipad.
The Tivo stream functionality will do this for you, but I am not sure what the conversion rate is to shrink the files because I do not use that method. Somebody on this board will know the answer to this.
There are other ways to go about this.
1 use kmttg to offload recordings from tivo to PC
2 use VideoRedo TV suite to edit the files and convert them to mpg
3 use VLC streamer helper to transcode the mpg files from your PC onto your iDevice. VLC allows you to choose the size of your output files.
