comment Accessing two devices with the same IP?
Now I tried assigning 192.168.56.200, which is an unused IP in the host-only network used by VirtualBox, 192.168.56.0/24. At that IP the camera also was unreachable.

See, that's what I did: I mapped the camera's MAC to 192.168.1.2 (in the network), and also - for testing - to 10.0.0.200 (outside of the network). None of the IPs was reachable, neither by PTP/IP nor by HTTP. Ping I didn't try because I think the camera doesn't respond to ping requests.

Interesting - didn't know about this possibility. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work. Using arp -a, I found out the MAC address of the camera, associated with 192.168.1.1 (dynamic). Then using arp -s I assigned 10.0.0.200 as well as 192.168.1.2 to that MAC address (static). However, at neither of these IPs I could access the camera. If there is anything else I can try, please let me know.

@AFH One VM, I said. It's for NATing the second Theta's IP. As I wrote before: "If Internet is needed, then connecting to the Internet and to the Theta at the same time is no problem from Windows 7 with two adapters." In fact I do that all the time when developing and testing my app Theta Control.

@AFH Only need one VM would be required. If Internet is needed, then connecting to the Internet and to the Theta at the same time is no problem from Windows 7 with two adapters. Well, unless the Internet router also uses 192.168.1.0/24, but one could change that. The VM is only needed for the second Theta. The USB dongle would be attached directly to the VM, which is just one click with VMware and VirtualBox.

@AFH Neither the official Android app nor documentation mentions the possibility of modifying the IP address. Also, I am not aware of any inofficial hacks to do that. Thing is, the WiFi connection is supposed to be used from smartphones and tablets. As these devices normally only have one WiFi adapter, there is no conflict, except if a device is connected to a 3G network 192.168.1.0/24. In that case you would simply disable 3G.

@DavidPostill The USB connection is for downloading pictures and for charging the battery. You cannot trigger the shutter via it. I've tried that with gphoto2, and so have others.

comment Use NVidia GPU from VirtualBox?
@ernie VirtualBox can give guests direct access to the OpenGL API of the host's GPU. As far as I can tell that works on my machine. Only VirtualBox is using the Intel GPU instead of the NVidia GPU. Quote from the VirtualBox manual: "With this feature, if an application inside your virtual machine uses 3D features through the OpenGL or Direct3D 8/9 programming interfaces, instead of emulating them in software (which would be slow), VirtualBox will attempt to use your host's 3D hardware."
