Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0165850A2] A method is provided for a cable television client device during a power-up sequence to load selected applications into a memory from a cable televisions server device coupled to the client device. The server device transmits a table of services to all client devices in the network. The client devices receive the table of services and store the table in memory. The table of services comprises a list of a plurality of individual service applications available to a subscriber utilizing the client device. The client device then determines which of the plurality of individual service applications in the table of services is denoted as a load-on-boot application and attempts to download each such file from the server device. Applications denoted as must-load applications are required by the server to be fully downloaded before a client device can begin normal operations, but applications denoted as preferred-load applications may be interrupted by a subscriber initiated command to the client device requiring the client device to immediately commence normal operations.
