Funnily enough I've been playing with this with regards to DVB-T at the moment.

The USB support in Virtualbox isn't as great as you might hope, I've
had success with some USB devices and not with others.  At the same
time I tried with a trial version of VMWare and have found that while
VMWare support for USB devices seems better then Virtualbox it's still
not perfect.

I'd be interested to see what success you have with DVB-S(2) devices.
