Abstract

The invention discloses a method for upgrading a terminal set-top box, and belongs to the technology of the set-top box. The method comprises the following steps of: transmitting an upgrading trigger camail instruction in a network; opening the terminal set-top box to receive the instruction; judging the type of the instruction; judging upgrading conditions; judging whether a manufacturer of an updating mark, hardware version OUI and software type and version are consistent with related information of the set-top box; and selecting by a user: if the user selects yes, performing the following upgrading processes in turn: starting a software application of the set-top box, tuning the application to a corresponding frequency point to download updating data according to information provided by the updating mark; verifying the downloaded data; and updating the software of the set-top box and the like. Information for triggering the upgrading of the set-top box software is transmitted by adopting camail, so that the method has the advantages of no need of manual input, simple configuration, higher accuracy, high reliability and capability of avoiding configuration problem or upgrading failure and more efficiently triggering the upgrading of the terminal set-top box without the inserting of multiple triggering conditions.

Description

The upgrade method of terminal set top box
Technical field
The invention belongs to radio and television set-top box technical field, more particularly relate to the improvement and the innovation of the upgrade method of terminal set top box.
Background technology
The upgrade method of set-top box is at present: adopt the method for inserting privately owned descriptor in the network information table (NIT) of electronic program guides (EPG) to issue the triggering upgrade information; After set-top box was received the above-mentioned trigger message of EPG, whether Rule of judgment met; As meet and then carry out software upgrading.
Such implementation has a lot of drawbacks: 1, the character string of configure trigger upgrade information is very long, needs manually input, disposes loaded down with trivial details; 2, promotion condition is inserted in the EPG form, is easy to occur allocation problem, thereby causes set top box upgrading failure or user to can not receive trigger message; If 3 during at smart card ID number discontinuous card upgrade, need repeat to insert many trigger conditions, cause the EPG form to increase, even exceed the size of digital video-frequency broadcast standard DVB code requirement.
Summary of the invention
Purpose of the present invention just is to overcome above-mentioned shortcoming and defect, and a kind of upgrade method of terminal set top box is provided.It adopts a kind of easier collocation method and accurate more trigger message, that is consider that existing cable TV subscriber controls and the characteristics of signal transmission, the employing condition receives mail (CA-MAIL) and issues the information that triggers updating set-top box software, need not manual input, and configuration is simple.Can avoid occurring allocation problem or upgrading failure, the reliability height.Need not to insert many trigger conditions, can trigger upgrading to terminal set top box more efficiently.
In order to achieve the above object, set-top box of the present invention is after receiving trigger message, and whether Rule of judgment meets, as meets and then carry out software upgrading.It may further comprise the steps:
(1) in network, sends upgrading and trigger the CA-MAIL instruction; (2) open terminal set top box, receive the CA-MAIL instruction of issuing this machine smart card; (3) set-top box is judged the type of CA-MAIL instruction automatically, if upgrading class mail is then resolved the upgrade information among the CA-MAIL, enters following promotion condition determining step; If not upgrading class mail, then carry out other processing; Whether (4) promotion condition determining step: set-top box judges automatically more whether the production firm of new logo is consistent with the relevant information of this set-top box with version with hardware version OUI and software type among the CA-MAIL, then selected to Upgrade Now by the user as unanimity; As inconsistent, then terminal set top box finishes the flow process of upgrading automatically; (5) user selects step: select "Yes" as the user, then enter following upgrade step successively; Select "No" as the user, then terminal set top box finishes the flow process of upgrading automatically; (6) after the user selects to Upgrade Now, start the updating set-top box software application program, according to the information that more new logo provided in the CA-MAIL instruction, be tuned to corresponding frequency, the down loading updating data; (7) data downloaded is carried out verification, wrong as verification, then terminal set top box finishes the flow process of upgrading automatically; (8) errorless as the data verification, then carry out the software upgrading of set-top box, upgrade the back terminal set top box that finishes and finish the flow process of upgrading automatically.
Promotion condition determining step (4) comprises step by step following: judge 1. more whether the production firm of new logo is consistent with the relevant information of this set-top box with hardware version OUI among the CA-MAIL, then enters following step as unanimity; As inconsistent, then terminal set top box finishes the flow process of upgrading automatically; 2. judge that whether software type is consistent with the relevant information of this set-top box, then enters following step as unanimity; As inconsistent, then terminal set top box finishes the flow process of upgrading automatically; 3. judge whether software version is consistent with the relevant information of this set-top box, then select whether to Upgrade Now by the user as unanimity; As inconsistent, then terminal set top box finishes the flow process of upgrading automatically.
The present invention reduces the difficulty of configuration information in order to realize simultaneously to terminal set top box addressing easily and efficiently upgrading, adopts CA-MAIL to carry the triggering upgrade information of set-top box.CAS itself possesses reliable addressing mechanism, and the SMS system relevant with CA describes information of terminal user in detail: information such as the production firm of set-top box, hardware version, software type and version, CA manufacturer and intelligent card numbers.Thereby can utilize self addressing attribute of the interface of existing SMS and CAS and CA simultaneously, upgrade information accurately is sent to terminal triggers the designated user set top box upgrading.
Task of the present invention comes to this and finishes.
The present invention considers the characteristics of existing cable TV subscriber's control and signal transmission, adopts CA-MAIL to issue the information that triggers updating set-top box software, need not manual input, disposes simply and more accurate.Can avoid occurring allocation problem or upgrading failure, the reliability height.Need not to insert many trigger conditions, can trigger upgrading to terminal set top box more efficiently.
It can send upgrade information at the intelligent card numbers of subscriber computer top box, because condition receiving system itself has the addressing attribute of smart card ID number, can accurately send the trigger message of terminal staging at the user.
Meanwhile, receive attribute that Subscriber Management System (SMS) that (CA) system is associated can detail record subscriber computer top box, set-top box ID, intelligent card numbers, set-top box manufacturer etc. with condition; Need not the artificial CA-MAIL that participates in generating automatically after being convenient to, simplify the upgrading configuration, and improve the accuracy of configuration greatly.For discontinuous card number, it is promptly scalable only to need that different card numbers is sent out CA-MAIL, does not influence other business.It can be widely used in the during upgrading of terminal set top box.
