Abrégé
(EN)
Flexible systems and methods are disclosed that may be used for provisioning, configuring, and controlling a host embodied in a cable set top box (7) or other digital device attached to a digital communication network, such as cable distribution network (6). An enhanced services system (49) maintains various host files for various types of hosts that a cable subscriber may purchase and connect to the cable network (6). The Enhanced Services Server (49) interacts with the host using the host files. The host files may be downloaded from the host manufacturer into a database (42) that distributes the modules as required to various enhanced services systems (49). The cable subscriber may purchase (7) and the retailer may initiate provisioning at the time of purchase using a provisioning network (44) interacting with the appropriate cable system (6) serving the subscriber.

L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés souples pouvant être utilisés pour fournir, configurer et commander un dispositif hôte incorporé dans un boîtier décodeur de câble ou un autre dispositif numérique rattaché à un réseau de communications numériques, tel qu'un réseau de distribution par câble. Un système de services améliorés met à jour des fichiers hôtes différents dans des types d'hôtes différents qu'un abonné câble peut acheter et connecter au réseau par câble. Un serveur de services améliorés interagit avec l'hôte au moyen des fichiers hôtes. Ces fichiers hôtes peut être téléchargés vers l'aval du fabricant hôte dans une base de données distribuant des modules nécessaires aux systèmes de services améliorés. L'hôte peut être acheté par l'abonné câble et fourni par le détaillant au moment de l'achat à l'aide d'un réseau de fourniture interagissant avec le système par câble approprié qui sert l'abonné.
