A DVR is a Digital Video Recorder. It's like a VCR, but instead of using a tape it records and plays back video digitally. It works like your computer, with a hard drive that stores the information. TiVo is the most popular DVR. It was one of the first on the market. These days there are other competing brands of DVRs, and many cable companies have started offering DVR services. Essentially, they've built a DVR into your cable box and then sell you the ability to use it as an added option (generally for $10 a month or so). The cable-company option requires no hardware since the DVR receiver is integrated with your program menu, so it can be cheaper.
