    So where do the new compatible drivers for my device from sources such as LapTVideo2Go come from originally if manufacturers decide not to bother to update older systems?
    There's a lot of hardware abandoned by their manufacturers but most drivers still work. They just have no incentive to support them any longer. They'd rather sell new stuff.

    The drivers are released from Realtek, so Realtek does what they supposed to do....
    I would guess that the updated drivers are available to manufacturers only, since they're not available to the general public (but we get them, unofficially, from people who have access to the Realtek ftp site).
    Now whether the manufacturer will get into the process of updating the drivers for their machines (especially the older ones) is a completely different story and definitely up to them and their marketing policy.

    Powershell says that the driver file used is hdxrtgi.inf
    Just to make sure: I have Windows Pro 1803 x64 and I can't seem to find that file name in this driver which is on MUC for Windows 1803. Does that mean that this driver is not suited for my audio device? So the only place I can find suited drivers is LapTVideo2Go, Necacom or other sources besides MUC?
    I have to assume that HDXRtGi.inf is pretty generic as it is included in EVERY Realtek Driver integration , at least in 8648 hdxrtgi.inf is in FF00,FF0C,FF01,FF03,FF04,FF06,and FF10.

    I don't know if your exact model is included as I am not sure it is included..... get the driver download from Github made by AlanFox and you can check it yourself , it includes all the above integration. You could get 8652 instead since I read here, it is a good Driver too.

    ***EDIT your model : HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0892&SUBSYS_1458A182
    is in FF00 and FF0C as I just checked ......I didn't check them all though


    MUC drivers don't support every device out there for every version and for UAD drivers , they don't always provide all the driver dependencies either ( they come from the Manufacturer's FULL Driver install ).

    Thank you for the great help. So I take it, this driver would be the correct one?

    Thanks, it makes sense now. One last question, is the UAD version any better than HDA? For example, does it take less memory when opened?

    That should do it.....when you extract it you will get all the Folders , just delete whichever you don't need and just keep FF00 for example....

    I don't use UAD so can't comment on those or their sound....

    Yes. If you have space constraints on your HD, the easiest way to use that is to use an unzipping utility and only unzip the folder that you need (Each type, such as FF00, FF0C, etc., has its own folder inside the .ZIP file, and extracting the entire thing can take a lot of space on your HD.

    Thanks! I think I will use AlanFox's Github from now on for my drivers then. I can see they're coming from Realtek's FTP sites so I assume it has not been tinkered with.

    I have no space constraints, but I still use that method - it's just faster and easier to extract the drivers I know I need and leave everything else packed. The FF00 drivers alone typically take up ~800 MB when extracted. IIRC, the entire package took over 3 GB extracted. So it made sense to extract the one folder.

    Whether tinkered or not, I can say this - I've been using that repo for a while now and have had 0 issues.

    As for the UAD drivers - sometimes you cannot even install them, as is the case on my system - attempting to do so results in an error message stating "No compatible devices found" - which means that, for my system, the older style HD Audio drivers are the only method I have of getting RealTek drivers working.
