Can anyone suggest a NVR that will work with multiple brands of IP cams? I was thinking some NVRs only work with certain brands of IP cams.

Depends on your budget but Synology Surveillance Station is popular. It's a NAS device that runs apps, and Surveillance Station is one of them. They have different sized NAS devices from under $200 to over $1,000. You get one camera license free, additional run about $50. I did a review on my blog not that long ago. They support many brands, ones they don't can be setup as ONVIF. The big plus is that's a NAS, so you can use for other stuff like PC backups or media server.

NUUO is one that advertise a bunch and has wide camera support.

I'm personally not a fan of NVR devices including NAS'es because they tend to be slower, laggy, since many lower end units use ARM processors or Atom processors. Also limited, for example, if you get an 8 camera NVR, you can't add a 9th camera, you toss it and start over. Also many have frame rate limitations, so you may get 8 cameras, but maybe it won't allow you to specify 30fps for all cameras.
