I don't use unraid, but temperature/smart data makes it into the VM just fine for me and I can run selftests, etc.

Areca RAID controllers have supported 4k sectors for quite a while. Older versions of windows can handle them just fine as long as you don't try to boot from them.

In my own testing, the ESXi 4.1 USB passthrough seems to be quite slow. I'm not convinced it provides a good enough environment for tuners at the moment.

Interesting. I haven't tried a video card, perhaps there's a conflict with ESXi using/needing it. Maybe you could try 2 video cards in the system and passthrough the second one.

It is impractical for software companies to release details of new versions before they are ready for a variety of reasons, not the least of which includes IP issues.

Relax.

My server has 6 PCIe 2.0 (16/8/8/8/8/4) slots. I don't think anybody would expect you to put even one video card (it has onboard video) in this box.
