Title (EN) CUSTOMIZED OVER-THE-AIR TELEVISION CHANNEL MAPPING FOR GEOGRAPHICAL AREA USING CROWDSOURCING OF OVER‑THE‑AIR TELEVISION CHANNELS
(FR) MAPPAGE PERSONNALISÉ DE CANAUX RADIO DE TÉLÉVISION POUR UNE ZONE GÉOGRAPHIQUE À L'AIDE D'UNE EXTERNALISATION OUVERTE DE CANAUX RADIO DE TÉLÉVISION
Abstract:
(EN) Embodiments are directed toward providing a customized over-the-air channel mapping to each content receiver in a geographical area based on crowdsourced mappings of available channels from at least a subset of the content receivers in that geographical area. When a new content receiver is installed in the geographical area, the customized over-the-air channel mapping is provided to the new content receiver and used by the new content receiver as its internal list of available over-the-air channels without performing a scan of its own. At least a portion of the content receivers in the geographical area perform a round-robin-type scan to identify new or missing channels in the geographical area. The customized over-the-air channel mapping is then updated when a new channel or missing channel threshold is reached. And the updated customized over-the-air channel mapping is provided to each content receiver in the geographical area.
(FR) Des modes de réalisation concernent la fourniture d'un mappage personnalisé de canaux radio à chaque récepteur de contenu dans une zone géographique sur la base de mappages à externalisation ouverte de canaux disponibles à partir d'au moins un sous-ensemble des récepteurs de contenu dans cette zone géographique. Lorsqu'un nouveau récepteur de contenu est installé dans la zone géographique, le mappage personnalisé de canaux radio est fourni au nouveau récepteur de contenu et est utilisé par le nouveau récepteur de contenu en tant que liste interne de canaux radio disponibles sans effectuer un balayage qui lui est propre. Au moins une partie des récepteurs de contenu dans la zone géographique effectuent un balayage de type à permutation circulaire pour identifier de nouveaux canaux ou des canaux manquants dans la zone géographique. Le mappage personnalisé de canaux radio est ensuite mis à jour lorsqu'un seuil de nouveaux canaux ou de canaux manquants est atteint. Et le mappage personnalisé de canaux radio mis à jour est fourni à chaque récepteur de contenu dans la zone géographique.
