Title: System and method for achieving interoperability in home network with IEEE 1394 and UPnP devices

Abstract: In a home network, a proxy is used to convert information in UPnP format from UPnP devices to IEEE 1394 format so that IEEE 1394 devices in the network can access the information which was originally in UPnP format. Likewise, the proxy converts information in IEEE 1394 format from IEEE 1394 devices to UPnP format so that UPnP devices in the network can access the information which was originally in IEEE 1394 format.
