How to establish an interface/GUI to BeagleV Ahead if a peripheral is using the USB port?

Hi, forgive the total newb question - I see that the primary interface to the BVA is the USB port. But what if I have, say, a USB camera hooked up to the USB port and therefore cannot use it to interface with the BVA from my laptop. What is the alternative? Am I limited to a text based interface via the debug port? Plug an HDMI monitor in (but then how to use a keyboard/mouse)?

I don’t have a BVA, this is general information that should apply to your board.

ssh using Ethernet or debug port, ssh is better so you can use nautilus to drag files onto the board.

USB adapter with multiple ports, some are flaky and some work good, just depends and requires some testing.
