The Hardware Settings tab allows users to reconfigure the hardware without loading a new firmware.
The drop-down list selects the options for each port. Some combinations are not available (for example, S.Bus input must be on the MainPort because of a hardware inverter required).

A driver is not needed in order to configure your OpenPilot board. However, if you want to use the Virtual Comm Port support you'll need a driver on a Windows machine.
The CDC driver is normally installed together with the GCS.
If the driver didn't install or you want to install the driver manually, please download the CDC driver for Windows: OpenPilot-CDC.inf.
A driver is not needed on Mac or Linux platforms.
