I'm trying to understand... you want to dedicate the onboard card to the 
VM and the 2496 to the host?  In my experience, anything that works on 
the host works on the VM (but not simultaneously).

What happens in the VM when the host sees the 2496 and you enable the 
onboard sound?

Can you get the host to see both?
