I want to archive a page with a bunch of live video streams.

I have, for work, a web page that is a thumbnail view of 12 (eventually 20) low frame-rate video streams. Think security cameras. I need to record this.

The cameras have very complicated rights and access situations so all I can be assured of is that I will have the stream that is on that page - no back-end access. It seems to me that a PC displaying this page HDMI'd into a DVR with rolling record enabled should do what I want. Is there a better way? Do you have specific hardware suggestions?
Windows Media Encoder does something like what I want, and would obviate the need for a separate DVR, but would that even work? Is it scriptable? Can it be a service? I would very much like to set it and forget it. It can't be something I have to babysit, it must be pretty reliable.
I have some budget for this. Let's say $1000.
