USB TV Cards on a Virtual Macine

Hi all
In general this is a no no as most video apps usually need direct access to the hardware which the Virtual Bios doesn't see.

I was wondering however has anyone managed to get o USB TV stick working on a Virtual Machine yet whther using VBOX or VMWARE.

If you did what is the TV stick you are using and what software did you run for the TV application.

Would the TV function in Windows XP Media Center edition work in a VM.

Note that the BBC Iplayer works in a VM (Vmware) so SOME video will of course work in a VM.

Cheers

Jimbo,
That is something I have wondered myself.
But here is a better question if you get an usb video card, (I actually saw one once on new egg).(Newegg.com - IOGEAR USB 2.0 External VGA Video Card GUC2015V USB 2.0 Interface - TV Tuners & Video Devices)
Could you run vmware or your vm with that graphics card and actually use it instead of the vms software video card?
