    Default Do STB have Id's to be recognised? by broadcasters


    Does a STB have an ID system in place to be identified?
    Are signals sent to a digital specific card or STB which holds the card?
    Can a broadcaster see which channels in a bouquet are popular?
    Say Im a subscriber to a bouquet,and use the receiver given by the co., later I use my own STB, will the broadcaster know that Im not using his receiver?.

    This may sound silly but for starters, good info for beginners.
    Replies appreciated

    No. It cannot be identified via satelllite.

    Are signals sent to a digital specific card or STB which holds the card?

    In some type of scrambling it is card specific and it another type Card+Receiver specific.

    Can a broadcaster see which channels in a bouquet are popular?

    They can do by counting how many have subscribed to a particular package.

    Say Im a subscriber to a bouquet,and use the receiver given by the co., later I use my own STB, will the broadcaster know that Im not using his receiver?.

    No they can't.
