In this paper we introduce a cooperative environment between the interactive digital TV (IDTV) and the networked home with the aim of allowing the interaction between interactive TV applications and the controllers of the in-home appliances in a natural way. Concretely, we have selected the MHP (multimedia home platform) standard, well-known in the IDTV field, and OSGi (open service gateway initiative), the most widely used open platform to set up residential gateways. To overcome the radically different conceptions below these two specifications we define a new kind of application, coined as XbundLET, which acts as a bridge between both worlds allowing MHP applications to use the OSGi services and vice versa, i.e., allowing OSGi applications to take advantage of the MHP functionality. As a further step towards integrated residential gateways, we also propose a semantic description for OSGi services at the smart home that facilitates services discovery and invocation from broadcast MHP applications.
