Essentially it's an embrace and extend MPEG-2 file with Digital Rights
Management associated with it...so that would imply that it employs some
sort of encryption along with it.
It is a file format used by Media Center for recording and, probably to
ensure that the user can't just do "whatever he wants" with the shows he
recorded from the television...

(in case that link has problems, www.google.com, type "define: dvr-ms")
