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.
