AVR File - opening and understanding

Did your computer fail to open an AVR file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .AVR files.

What is an AVR file?

The .avr file extension is used for a digital video file format for DVB-T set-top boxes. DBB-T stands for Digital Video Broadcasting Terrestrial, which is the standard for terrestrial digital video transmissions of television broadcasts in the EU. In 1997, DVB-T was published as the European-based consortium standard, and in 1998, this was deployed across the UK.Also known as MPEG-2 transport stream files, these AVR files contain digital video streams of television broadcasts. These are also generated by supported set-top box devices as recorded digital television broadcast streams. These .avr files can be opened and played by the built-in digital video player software of these set-top boxes.The digital video content of these .avr files can also be opened and viewed using the Project X software. This is a multimedia player that was designed for Windows platforms, Mac OS X computers, Linux and Unix-based systems. There are no known applications that can convert these AVR files to standard digital video formats like AVI, MP4, WMV or MOV.
