Google says it is available with Component video outputs, so as long as
those have not been disabled, it should work.  If they have been disabled,
you could try telling your provider that your TV is old and does not have
HDMI, so you need Component.

The real issue may be controlling it.  Are you using an IR blaster?  You
might need to change the codes it is sending to control the new box. I am
fortunate that my STB can be controlled over the network, so I don't have
to deal with IR.
