Are there any Hybrid DVRs with only a couple TVI inputs and multiple IP inputs? All I've ever seen is the other way around, 2 IP and the rest analog.

Michael, are U sure about the # of specific inputs?
I could swear that in hybrids, the number of physical inputs is either matched or totaled to max number of available channels.

Need 7 IP inputs, 1 analog input. Upgrading system in which original installer ran a mix of cat5, rg6/16/2, and premade cables that come with cheap systems. I can replace the premade but no way to replace the RG6, so either need something with 7 IP inputs and one analog or will just get a 8 channel NVR and a 4 channel DVR. As far as use on the app, it would work as one system. Have to check out Brent's suggestion still to see if it does what we need. Ed's is the opposite of what I need.

If its only a single camera, why not just get an IP encoder for it. That way all your cameras can be on the same NVR?

I found these when looking into an alternative to using the Coax for an IP camera system as opposed to using TVI cameras.

Haven't used them but should work for your one camera that needs to be IP

He needs one analog, the rest IP.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

He is upgrading an analog system to become a Hybrid. I am providing him a solution to use the existing coax that the original company installed and he can then install an IP camera onto it so he doesn't require the analog/TVI camera and hybrid recorder.

I wrote "He needs one analog, the rest IP."
He had written "Need 7 IP inputs, 1 analog input."
Those two are the same thing.

Your idea solves the problem, but it's not clearly presented. You totally left out that the solution is to rethink the situation, to flip it and convert the one analog camera to IP. Then a straight IP-only NVR can be used.

Instead you said "should work for your one camera that needs to be IP," which just happens to be the opposite of what he had said.

Clarity.

Look at it again.
Has up to 8 IP inputs and the rest could be any of the others, up to 16 total. I dont think they're physical inputs but you put them on the network and pull them in like that.
Of course they would probably need to be onvif compliant and even with that you may not get 100% functions.
If it could work just call their tech line.

I thought about possibly an encoder this morning while driving to ADI. Client wanted this up by tomorrow as they are having work done around the property. ADI suggested a Hik DVR that can be configured to use IP cams and/or analog. They didn't have it in stock, nor had any encoders. Just ended up grabbing a 4 channel NVR for the single Analog and a TVI cam. It's seamless in the app so it works and everything is up and running by clients deadline. Thanks for the input everyone.
