what is the recommended way to fix my webcam to /dev/video1 and the tv card
to /dev/video0.


Not sure about "recommened", but adding the following rules to
/etc/udev/rules.d/11-local.rules solved the issue for me

KERNEL=="video?", SUBSYSTEM=="video4linux", ATTR{name}=="gspca*",
NAME="video0", SYMLINK+="webcam"
KERNEL=="video?", SUBSYSTEM=="video4linux", ATTR{name}=="BT878*",
NAME="video1", SYMLINK+="tvcard"

(Change the ATTR(name) according to your device driver names).
