Send to Tivo. Simple as that.

Is there a Readability-like app for video that will send YouTube videos to my Tivo or Apple TV with one or two mouse clicks?

In my ideal world rather than click on a link to YouTube I could right-click and select "Send to Apple TV" or "Send to Tivo" and then when I got home I could turn on my TV and see a playlist with all the videos I've sent. Pretty much exactly how Readabiity works with my Kindle.
It would have to be able to do this from any computer, even if it didn't have iTunes on it. So a simple browser add-on would be best. It won't help me if I can only do it from my computer at home. I realize I can bookmark stuff with a cloud-based bookmark thing during the day and then watch them at home on a computer. No good, I want them on my TV.
I do not want to build any sort of home-grown Linux Tivo wanna-be system.
I *do* have XBMC on my jailbroken Apple TV 2. I would rather not have to use that but if what I want can work with that, I'll take it.
I have a feeling I'm overlooking something obvious here, like what I want already exists within those products. I suppose I could follow the link and favorite something on YouTube and then browse to my favorite list but I'd rather not even go to YouTube in the first place.
I want it to be as simple as possible. Right-click, send, go home, sit my lazy ass on the couch and have my TV help me catch up on the day's "must see" videos.
