Hey,
    I have a DVR for my surveillance system in a store and it records video in a .DVR format i looked all over the place to get a player other than the one that came with the DVR or a way to convert the .DVR to a format that can be read by other programs (AVI, MPEG, etc.. )

If it's just a standard CCTV DVR format then try one of the utilities in this folder for playback ( link here).  DVR converters are not always all they are advertised to be.  You may need to capture the video playback from the screen using smething like CamStudio
