I hope someone will see this post and have an idea. Here's what I have:

Kitchen TV has no audio out whatsoever. TV is connected and paired to FIOS TV One mini box. I have a pair of iHome computer speakers I'd like to use which have both USB and 3.5 mm connector. I turned tv speakers off on TV remote, changed volume on STB to variable. When speakers are connected to STB 3.5 mm audio out jack, I can hear the sound clear but loud. I cannot figure out how to control their volume. Mute, etc doesn't work either. I tried to select the additional speaker option on STB remote option but it wouldn't pair or recognize the iHome brand. I think that covers it. Thanks!

There is no "audio out" on the back of the mini. That is an AV out that you should have gotten an adapter for with the box. The adapter has a yellow RCA video and audio out. You would need a Male RCA to  whatever the input of the speakers is., using the white RCA from the fios adapter. You were correct changing the audio out to variable. The volume control on the remote will then control the volume.

So let me see if I understand what you're saying. Into the 3.5 mm Jack on the FiOS TV One with a three-way RCA   female to 3.5 mm male splitter which my Verizon tech gave me. RCA male into the splitter red white for stereo to get sound to both speakers. The other end of the male would have to go into an RCA female to 3.5 mm female to connect to the speaker input. I'm I thinking about that right?

You buy a Male stereo RCA to Male 3.5mm cable, pretty common. The red and whte Male RCA of the cable plug into the female red and white RCAs from the Fios adapter. The 3.5 mm of the cable plugs into the speaker input. Boom, that should work. If you look closely at the Fios adapter you'll see there are 4 rings, not 3 like the 3.5mm cable. The 4th is for the video, so using a 3 conductor plug into the mini doesn't work.
