Suggestions For a Solid DVR/HD-Analog Solution

Ok, so I just started helping a large client, lots and lots of different locations with all sorts of different recorders. Everfocus, ISIS (korean company? bad name choice now) Dedicated Micros, Samsung, Vitek, Vocon, the list goes on and on.

Can you recommend a reliable DVR, remote interface is not really an issue - its not allowed to put the locations on a remote setting or client. They are interested in the HD analog, HD-CVI route, and I wanted to find a good solution they could standardize on. HikVision was a possibility - however I wonder about servicing units from China and thier reliability. Digital Watchdog is one I have used in the past that seemed decent. Price is definitely a driver (I dont have to go bargain basement, but I don't think I will be able to sell them Exacq or Salient Hybrid NVRS either). Does anyone have a recommendation on 8 channel or 16 channel DVRs that are both reliable and come from a decent name in the CCTV industry?
