First, if all you want to do is store and send back files from your tivo, the mpeg2 files will work. Pytivo can push or pull them although they are large and slow to transfer.
Easiest is a matter of preference but there are 3 or 4 ways the majority of folks here do this.
I use meGUI as it also allows me to process bluray and internet soruced material to tivo compatible mp4 files and a great deal of control of the finished product. I have also been using it for years and am past most of the learning curve. Its not bad for the basics which work fine for tivo.
Otheres here use VideoRedo which is commercial software. I do own it and use its commercial editing and stream fix functions but not its h264 encoding which I find limiting in processing video from other than the tivo.
Lastly, a few use handbrake which also works fine with the correct profiles for tivo mp4 files. I understand it can even encode 5.1 AC3 audio now which was the primary reason I left it years ago. Handbrake is also useful for encoding from DVD.
That should get you started in the right direction.
