In theory you can have up to four iTuner cards for instance in a PC, which (with the expansion boards if you have room) will do eight cams each but I would not be surprised if this exceeds your PCI bandwidth. I recall people posting that they have used dual bus systems for this kind of system but I'm no expert on this.
