I currently have an USB card reader (smargo) in a virtual machine that
works without problems.
So I got enthusiastic and started thinking of the possibilities with
usb dvb devices.
I just do not want to buy any usb dvb device unless I am sure it is
supported and has the multirec possibility.
Just hope it is gonna work.

I will post results here, if i have a usb dvb device :)
