What is STB?
STB or set-top box. For analog service, set-top boxes descramble the premium channels and manage the higher channel numbers old TVs do not support. For digital service, they decode the MPEG-based digital signals, decrypt the premium channels and store and display the program guides with the channel numbers assigned by the cable provider. "HD set-top boxes" offer high-definition signals in addition to standard definition (SD).
