I just had my CableCard installation via Cablevision of Norwalk (CT) last Monday.

In fact I was about to give up waiting and figured something must be wrong -- however while I was dialing the cust service number all of my channels became available.
The installer told me he had done at least a half dozen Tivos so far, and came prepared with several extra CableCards. One of the Cablecards he tried was bad, and that seems to be a common problem. If you can I'd suggest urging them to bring several backup cards...
