Overview
FiOS Set Top Box

Your FiOS® by Frontier equipment consists of either a DVR Set-Top Box (Digital Video Recorder) or a Non-DVR Set-Top Box, plus a Remote Control.

Here are instructions for using your Set-Top Box:

Be sure to download your channel guide.

You probably have an HD or DVR Set-Top Box:

  • High Definition (HD) Set-Top Boxes provide all the features of the Standard Definition Set-Top Box, as well as access to HD content.
  • Digital Video Recorder (DVR) Set-Top Boxes provide all the features of the High Definition Set-Top Box, plus the ability to record shows and pause and rewind live TV.

If you still use an SD Set-Top Box, your equipment is still supported by Frontier:

  • Standard Definition (SD) Set-Top Boxes provide digital audio and video quality. SD gives you access to the FiOS® TV Interactive Media Guide, over 45 all-digital music channels and Pay-Per-View or On Demand shows.

A CableCARD is also available from Frontier Communications for a small charge per month. This device provides access to certain encrypted High Definition (HD) and Standard Definition (SD) digital programs without the need for a Set-Top Box. However, it does not support features like Video On Demand or Parental Controls.

Here are some helpful tips about recording TV, restricting access to certain channels or programming, and much more.
