Unable to use fios channels on the smaller magnavox fios box

We have 2 TVs with Fios. A few months ago in an effort to save a few dollars, we downgraded one of the fios boxes (a small Magnavox box they sent us in the mail) which would still allow us to watch tv/fios tv and videos on our DVD player. When trying to get to a 3 digit channel, it won't let us proceed. Any help torment tiff this would be greatly appreciate.

Verizon does not use Magnavox. What exact does the label say on that box?

I'll bet it is a digital converter box that supports QAM.

You wouldn't be able to access anything other than the free channels at that point which would probably all be below 100.

Are you just seeing local channels?
