Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MEDIA HUB SOFTWARE UPDATING
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE MISE À JOUR DE LOGICIEL DE CONCENTRATEUR MULTIMÉDIA
Abstract
(EN) A system and method for automatically analyzing and managing a media hub software update. The system and method each utilize available media hub system and diagnostic information to aid in the analysis and installation of a software update. If the installation of the update is determined to require memory capacity in excess of what is currently available within the media hub, an archive and off-loading process is automatically initiated to free the required memory space during the installation process. Any off-loaded information and/or applications are then restored after the installation is complete.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système et un procédé d'analyse et de gestion automatiques d'une mise à jour de logiciel de concentrateur multimédia. Le système et le procédé utilisent chacun un système de concentrateur multimédia disponible et des informations de diagnostic pour aider dans l'analyse et l'installation d'une mise à jour de logiciel. S'il est déterminé que l'installation de la mise à jour nécessite une capacité de mémoire dépassant ce qui est actuellement disponible dans le concentrateur multimédia, un processus d'archivage et de déchargement est automatiquement déclenché pour libérer l'espace mémoire requis pendant le processus d'installation. Toutes les informations et/ou applications déchargées sont ensuite restaurées lorsque l'installation est achevée.
