Title
(EN) MULTIPLE USER CONTROL OF A DOWN LOADABLE APPLICATION
(FR) COMMANDE PAR UTILISATEURS MULTIPLES D'UNE APPLICATION TELECHARGEABLE
Abstract
(EN)
Control of an operation of a multimedia terminal by an application, for example, a game or interactive television module, using remote control input signal is provided. An application is downloaded (Sl), input signals from remote control units (RC-1, RC-2, RC-N) are received (S3) at the multimedia terminal, a message, including a source indication indicating the remote control from which the input signal was received, is sent (S5) to the downloaded application. According to the downloaded application, the operation of the multimedia terminal is controlled (S6) based on the source indication. The message may be sent to the downloaded application by an application program interface- based module resident at the multimedia terminal. A disable signal to disable a key could be transmitted to one or more of the remote control devices, for example, to disable the key for a specified time or a specified turn of a user.

Cette invention permet de commander le fonctionnement d'un terminal multimédia par une application, par exemple un module de jeu ou de télévision interactive, en utilisant un signal d'entrée de télécommande. A cet effet, une application est téléchargée (S1), des signaux d'entrée provenant des unités de télécommande (RC-1, RC-2, RC-N) sont reçus (S3) au niveau du terminal multimédia, et un message contenant une indication de source indiquant la télécommande à partir de laquelle a été reçu le signal d'entrée est envoyé (S5) à l'application téléchargée. En fonction de l'application téléchargée, le fonctionnement du terminal multimédia est commandé (S6) sur la base de l'indication de source. Le message peut être envoyé à l'application téléchargée par un module basé sur une interface de programmes d'application résidant dans le terminal multimédia. Un signal d'invalidation destiné à invalider une clé peut être transmis à l'un ou plusieurs des dispositifs de télécommande, par exemple pour invalider la clé pendant une durée spécifiée ou pendant un tour spécifié d'un utilisateur.
