Cox Communications STB Energy Information

This site provides information about the energy efficiency of STB models that have been purchased by Cox Communications since January 1, 2014.  This site will be updated as Cox Communications adds new devices to its inventory.  Note that STBs deployed by cable operators are specific to such cable operator’s particular network, system configuration, headend, and software; contact your local cable operator to determine the STBs available for service in your location.  The power measurements herein represent the STBs generally configured as they are deployed in the cable operators’ networks, running the operators’ software, and measured in accordance with the test procedures as specified in the Voluntary Agreement.  The energy use of an individual STB may vary.
