I have a surveillance card with saa7134 chips. It should be able to

These devices are working fine, each device's channel 0(there isn't
any other channel of these devices) is an input for a camera.
So, how could I manage it to be 8 devices?

Kernel-version ? Newer kernels allow you to set v4l subsystem to "allocate minor device numbers dynamically". This is supposed to allow more than 4 devices on a single card, according to the help-text of the 2.6.29 kernel I just compiled.

Caveat: All this is from memory, ~24hours old.
