Title (EN) PERIPHERAL SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD OF A BROADCAST RECEIVER
(FR) TELECHARGEMENT D'UN LOGICIEL PERIPHERIQUE D'UN RECEPTEUR DE RADIODIFFUSION
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method for downloading update data to a targeted peripheral device connected to a broadcast receiver (110) such as an integrated receiver decoder (IRD). The update data (250) is received via a broadcast transmission. The system features one or more peripheral devices (120, 130) interconnected to the IRD (110). The IRD (110) receives a broadcast digital bit stream (200) and processes contents of its header information (210) if it is targeted for the IRD (110). Next, the IRD (110) determines whether the digital bit stream (200) includes update data (250) to be downloaded and which peripheral device is targeted to receive the update data (250). Thereafter, the IRD (110) causes the update data (250) to be loaded into the targeted peripheral device.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système et un procédé permettant de télécharger des données de mise à jour dans un périphérique cible connecté à un récepteur de radiodiffusion (110), tel qu'un récepteur-décodeur intégré (RDI). Les données de mise à jour (250) sont reçues via un émetteur de radiodiffusion. Le système présente un ou plusieurs périphériques (120, 130) interconnectés au RDI (110). Le RDI(110) reçoit un train numérique de radiodiffusion (200) et traite le contenu de son en-tête (210), s'il est destiné au RDI(110). Le RDI (110) détermine ensuite si le train numérique de radiodiffusion (200) comprend des données de mise à jour (250) à télécharger, ainsi que le périphérique ciblé pour leur réception. Le RDI (110) induit le téléchargement des données de mise à jour (250) dans le périphérique.
