you cant dude, i found out vmware isn't exactly a virtual "machine" its basically a compatibility layer.

All the devices are drivers written by VM-Ware, so you can just install the drivers like you would natively in windows. Sorry bud vmware is kinda bad.

hmm, people should know the slightest thing about say.. tv cards before they reply to a question on it....

your card is fully supported with the bttv driver. check the bttv docs for card specific information.
