Your old TV may not be up to current HDCP 2.2 or 2.0 specs. The Fios One box is looking for that level of copyright protection so you may need to get an adapter to allow for that conversion. This was posted in another thread: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Premiertek-HDMI-HDCP-2-2-to-1-4-and-1-4-to-2-2-Converter-2-Way-UHD-DVD-TV-4... Also try a new high-speed certified HDMI cable from the Fios box to your TV. Also set up the Fios box initially with the video resolution set to 1080i.
