My main OS is Ubuntu and I virtualize Windows for some apps that are not compatible with Linux.

Now I have a DVB-T TV adapter which is not compatible with Linux.

Is there a way to let Windows see the USB TV adapter while being virtualized?

Most virtualization software will allow for USB devices to be directly attached to the VM. VirtualBox, for instance requires that you install the Extension Pack so that USB devices are supported.
