All of the DVR-type appliances I've ever examined have been one of two "ODM" boards and software stacks, minimally rebranded - consequently, I would be willing to bet that it's not quite as bad of a hydra to get the common manufacturers to fix this in newer devices as it seems.

No experience with actual IP cameras (versus dumb cameras that only knew how to communicate over closed circuit to a DVR), but I would expect the DVR case to be the better bang/buck (there are probably more distinct internet connections with just one or two IP cameras instead of something managing them, but even if they're mostly the same stock board, there's probably many more vendors to convince to update their shit).
