It can't be played. Dvr files format has not been decoded till now. And at present its not possible. So enjoy it on your DVR box only.

I am going to repeat what has been already said. DVR uses DRM encryption on the video stored on their hard drives. It is designed to block data transfer to a medium like your computer to discourage piracy on the internet. You would have to hunt for decrypting tools on the net if there exist any for the tech your DTH Company is using. But there is no easy way to make these files playable on your computer. As simple as that. The reason is piracy. If they make it easy to get the files to your computer, all the content would be made available for sharing online.
