You said DVR, but rather than that, you need a Network Video Recorder(NVR) device for recording IP cameras streaming.

Generally, IP cameras work either on switched or routed topologies, then I think you won't experience any problem.
However, I suggest you looking at the camera and NVR specifications before buying.
Also, you could post your cameras and DVR models, maybe someone has already tested that devices.

Personally, I have successfully installed Hikvision and Ubiquiti cameras in routed, switched and bridged(wlan1 and ether1 bridged and the camera directly connected to the CPE on ether1) environments.
