I've been running the free version of Citrix XenServer for a while and
I now want to set up some PCI devices with PCI passthrough. I don't
believe this is possible on Citrix XenServer other than for video
cards which I'm not interested in (my PCI devices are DVB-T TV tuner

So I then started looking at XCP but I've found it difficult
understanding whether this may be possible in XCP or not. My confusion
is now further compounded by the fact that when you now go to download
XCP from http://www.xenproject.org/downloads/xen-cloud-platform-archives.html
it advises you to download the recently open sourced XenServer
instead. That of course will get me nowhere if PCI passthrough isn't
well supported on XenServer.

So if I download and install XCP amd I likely to make make much
progress on this or am I pushing stuff uphill?
