I understand there are people out there who have successfully virtualized a LinHES backend under Virtualbox.
What tuners have you had success with?

Thanks,

Whilst I personally have not done this, the HDHomeRun I suspect would work without issue as it is on the network and does not need a physical connection to the Virtual Machine.

I agree. I use VMWare Server 2 for my three LinHes guests. I use two HD-PVRs which are USB connected. No issue.

I've only used VirtualBox on top of my Windows desktop and it was stable but have not tried USB connections specifically.

I have been using VB flawlessly for about a year now and I love it! My life is SOOO much easier I could never go back. When I started out I had one problem - my tuners were all PCI based but I solved that... Read about my setup here... http://www.knoppmythwiki.org/index.php?page=WakeSBEOnly

As for HDHomerun, it should work great, being virtual will not be a problem for it. I would assume most/all USB-based tuners would also work well.
