As USB is virtualized it would be interesting to know if anyone has 
managed to get an external capture device to work.

Similarly I would be interested in knowing if anyone has a working USB 
or serial remote receiver that works, I tried an MCE remote with Vmware 
workstation 5.5 and Mythdora 4.0 but got only garbage when trying to use 
irw etc.

Is anyone running frontend and/or backend in vmware for anything but a 
test/dev platform?
