Settings>General>Auto-Lock

Set Auto-Lock to Never. I think this will help your issue. However, with Never, you must remember to lock your phone manually. And I think the last time I used the download feature I had to keep the app open, without allowing it to background.

The TiVo app should keep the iPhone awake as long as it's in the foreground and actively downloading. It's been a while since I've downloaded but that's how it worked the last time I did it.

Thumbs up

The TiVo app developers could - and should - make it so the app doesn't allow the phone to sleep when downloading. They could also make it a setting the user sets to enable/disable. Several of my apps have this feature.

In case a TiVo rep is reading this, ask your development team to read up on this setting:

Code:
[UIApplication sharedApplication].idleTimerDisabled = YES;

I'm pretty sure it does. It's been a while since I've downloaded anything (I typically stream) but last time I did the iPad stayed awake until the download completed.
