I have bought a used Pinnacle PCTV 100e (USB 2) and the seller had no driver CD available.  I have got it to work with the old PCTV USB 2 drivers, but these drivers are not compatible with Windows XP MCE MediaCenter. It works with the Vision program that comes with these drivers, but not in the MediaCenter.  According to most resellers, the 100e is compatible with MCE.

The drivers I find on Pinnacle's webpages are only updates to the original drivers. Does anyone know where to find drivers for this tuner so I can use it in my XP MCE?

You need to get a copy of Pinnacle MediaCenter as this contains the drivers.  Once you have this software you can get all your updates from here:

It is possible to download the latest full version of Pinnacle MediaCenter V3.4 from most P2P applications.  I have just seen on eDonkey2000 that there are many full CD ISO images of the latest software and drivers.
