I came across a solution for this just by chance.  I have another 4:3 SD TV that does not use FIOS.  Instead I get over-the-air broadcasts using a retail converter box.  When that box died I purchased newer digital converter called RCA DTA880.  Oddly, this has more options than the FIOS converter box, and this solved my display problem.

Thank you, CRobGauth! I have been trying to figure this out for hours, and after resetting my settings numerous times, googling, and trying to sort through Fios FAQ’s, the # sign was the answer! Thank you for saving my sanity!
