Just hook your TiVo up to your video input card. Then use VirtualDub to run all the same improvements that DScaler does. It does deinterlacing and scaling just as well, except not in real-time. Then save as whatever you want. DivX is outdated by now. I would use MS' Windows Media 8. Its an updated, two-pass MPEG 4 codec. DivX is just a rip of MS' first attempt at an MPEG 4 codec.
I personally use Windows Media Encoder to accomplish this. I've only attempted recording one thing off the video input. Most of the stuff I work with is DVD-based.
