What does TVR mean?

TVRTerminal Verification Results (Tag 95). List of outcomes involving the transaction. 

Tag 95 (TVR) contains five bytes of information about the transaction. Each bit is a single fact about the transaction. All zero bits is generally a clean bill of health and means the transaction is capable, in theory, of being approved offline (without contacting the issuer). However, the bits do not govern the final authorization decision (which rests with the card, if a second Gen AC was requested). 
The list of bit flags is shown below.

If you have tag 95 from a transaction, you can parse the bit values manually (as above) or put the whole TLV into the Parsomatic tool and check the TLVs Only checkbox to get a verbose parsing.
