Can I Use a Hybrid Dvr/Nvr With Analog & MP IP Cameras Together?

I have only setup systems using analog cameras. 8 to 32 camera systems using stand alone DVRs or PC DVR cards.

I have used pnp non MP IP cameras (nanny cam, drop cam etc) before.

Besides using IPVM info, classes and internet searches, I have tried asking "professionals" for opinions on different subjects, only to get brushed off.

I have an opportunity to put together a system that can use the resolution of good analog cameras in some locations, but there is a new for the resolution offered by a 2+ MP IP camera. I am looking into some hybrid decks 16ch & a 32ch. (split 8 & 8, and 16 & 16, analog-IP). Is there more bad than good with that? Or is it an option worth investigating more?
