Digital Video Recorder
Also known as a personal video recorder (PVR) or hard disk video recorder. DVRs store recordings on a large hard drive, and most let you pause and replay live television. When used with an electronic program guide service, you can find and record shows automatically.
Digital Video Recorders are the equivalent of analog VCRs or Video Cassette Recorders. Though most DVRs in the market right now use internal hard drives to record video from a television signal, some models are beginning to sport drives that can record directly to DVD recordable discs.
