Hi camtz, could you expand what you mean by Tivo as Tivo is not a video format but rather a hardware device that captures video.
http://reviews.cnet.com/digital-video-recorders-dvrs/tivo-series3-hd-dvr/4505-6474_7-32065631.html
Where do you plan to play these divx videos later on ?

If your desktop has a capture card you could connect the Tivo to the capture card
select capture preference in the PVR for divx format if supported othewise you may have to choose a longer path.
Capture in mpeg or avi then convert it to divx.
What format is Tivo capturing in?
With that info it'll be easier to help with converters.

here's a couple of ideas that I have used with great success divx converters
