The DVR files are created by Digital Video Recording Devices. This DVR file format is similar to the ASF file format and is a container file format, but the DVR file format allows for added features and functionality such as simultaneous record and playback, time-shifting and live pause.
A variety of device driver files and program overlay files have also been known to use the DVR file suffix.
