I am trying to figure out which cable boxes are compatible with Veriozn fios?

Currently I own two DCX3200 and I have had no luck getting them activated. I am the original owner of both of these set top boxes.  

Is there a list of compatible set top boxes?

Verizon doesn't support user owned stbs. Unless it is a cable card device.

Essentially all the STB are cablecard devices.

However many TIVO boxes work as do at least one other discontinued vendor.  But no non-verizon Motorola/ARRIS boxes.

The only list I have run across is this one at Verizon. Anyone else have a better one?

Digital Adapter
A Digital Adapter provides Fios TV access without the interactive features, Video On Demand, and the full Media Guide that a regular Set-Top Box provides. Digital Adapters are ideally suited to TVs that are less frequently watched (like a TV in a guest bedroom) or where space limitations are a concern.
