Because people like to get paid for their work. Why don't you work for your boss for free?
I did laugh at this... People always wanting a freebie... That said, if you have the tv tuner, it comes with the software for it...
There's always a catch, isn't there? ;-)
With Pinnacle tvtuner/capture boards you usually get a software cd with a paper cd sleeve that contains the serial, if you lose the sleeve usually with the cd in it your screwed, even though they offer downloads of the software you still need the sleeve, they could fix the problem by putting the serial on the actual hardware (printed label), but for some illogical reason they don't.
Hello, why i have to pay to download pinnacle tv center software?
