Whats the State of Virtualized Machines & CQC - December 2014
I am considering swapping out my server for a new one. I currently run WHS v1 as the OS and it also runs CQC as well as use to run SageTV.

While this runs fine, I would like to get stuff running on virtual machines as much as possible. I would like to run WHS v2 as the main OS and then have a virtual machine for CQC, another one for my PIAF phone system (would be a Linux machine), and possibly one other for SageTV should I ever go back to cable.

Early on with virtual machines, I know there where issues with attaching "stuff" to it. Whether it was via USB or a PCI slot, etc. - the older virtualized machines had problems accessing those attached peripherals.

So my questions is can today's virtual machines see PCI slot cards (like my Delta 410 sound card) and USB connected devices (like my Digi Edgeport 416 serial port box)? Are other people using virtual machines to run their CQC setup?

Other systems used:
SageTV w/ cablecard tuner & multiple extenders for viewing
BlueIris and IP cameras for CCTV
Incredible PBX for home phone
