I can't imagine the STB being plugged or not being plugged into the surge protector any issue. It's always good to have your electronics protected and a whole house surge protection wired to the panel if possible. 

I have heard of cases where the coax connected to the surge protector caused RF signal issues. If you are concerned you could plug STB into the outlet directly and use the other one for the UPS to plug in your other devices.
