[mythtv-users] OT: Myth on ESXi - passing through the USB controller

I may have to add a USB card to my host. I would like to buy USB3 card (latest technology), but I'm running ESXi 4.1
Does anyone know if VMDirectPath will allow me to connect a USB3 device to a VM under ESXi 4.1 ? (I know ESXI 5 understands USB 3 devices, but hopefully 4.1 just treats it as unknown and will pass it through???)

Under ESXi 5, it'd show up under the 'Advanced => Edit", the devices
that area available to passthough, long with their controller. For my
USB device, it shows as "Unknown USB (Universal Serial Bus)"
