Hi and thanks for your reply. Can it be that my current mobo only has one usb controller and that this limits my possibilities ? How could i find out ?
Currently, I've been experimenting both with usb device pass through and usb ports, with some mixed results. I haven't been able to figure out from the link you sent me how i could try to pass through entire USB controllers so thanks if you could point me to that ...
The 5 device limit is a software thing from PVE, doesn't have to do with your hardware. For PCIe passthrough, yes, you'd need a seperate controller (or you pass through your single mainboard controller, but then you won't be able to plug devices into your host system as long as the VM is running).
In general you need a seperate PCIe device to pass through, although *some* mainboards are fine giving the on-board ones to VMs (depends on IOMMU groups). "PCIe passthrough" is a rather advanced topic, but the documentation link above should provide you with the basics. "VFIO" often yields helpful results on search engines too.
