    Overview

    Where to download the latest drivers for your HTPC

    Latest Drivers

    Drivers tell Windows, and thus MediaPortal, what to do. Drivers change frequently, so the best practice is to use only the official drivers and preferably the latest versions. 

    This page provides the sources where you can download them. 

    Note: Beta, non-WHQL and other drivers like Omega and custom drivers are not supported. If you choose to use these drivers, you use them at your own risk.
