ieee1394 (Firewire) OHCI/UHCI support for Windows guests on Linux hosts would be a great boon to musicians and videographers everywhere. Perhaps a VirtualBox Guest Addition adding a virtual firewire chipset driver?
Many pro audio companies such as Alesis, Mackie, M-Audio etc. have great audio interfaces which sadly have no Linux drivers...
Firewire is the *last* thing keeping me (and others) from running fully virtual Windows installations on Linux. It seems no other solutions (VMWare, etc.) have given Firewire a priority. VirtualBox could really pull ahead of the pack here by being the first!
- Priority changed from major to minor
- Summary changed from ieee1394 (Firewire) UHCI/OHCI pass-through support to Feature request: ieee1394 (Firewire) UHCI/OHCI pass-through support
