Software testing has become a key factor in software development processes in the last decades. Ideally, it should check programming errors, assure conformance, and prevent weaknesses that attacks can exploit. However, at the same time, the ability to increase the coverage of testing approaches regarding expected features or source code also turned out to be quite a challenge. The present work considers tests applied to evaluate interactive middleware modules for digital TV receivers. To enhance their resulting quality assessment, we have developed a methodology that verifies the current test coverage provided by a test suite and executes an exploratory study to expand it. Finally, we have conducted experiments considering test suites for commercial versions of the middleware Ginga-D used in Brazil. As a result, new error conditions and weaknesses were identified, which can effectively improve middleware modules.
