New TivoHD - what to do before Cable Cards Arrive?

So I am receiving my new tivo HD Friday and my cable cards are to be "installed/delivered" by Cox - Fairfax on Saturday, what if anything should I do Friday night with the Tivo to get ready?

Set up the component cable, hook up the coax cable, install the wireless wifi thing, call tivo or online and set up lifetime service?

Anything else?

I've been out of the tivo game for a while and want a successful cable card installation (I realize some of that is out of my hands).

Thanks,
jctivo

All of the above. It wouldn't be a bad idea to force several daily calls to TiVo in order to upgrade the TiVo to release 11, either. Basically, get everything working that can work without the CableCards so as to eliminate any issues that might confuse the situation.

Get your TiVo service activated before it grabs Version 11 software - there's a thread here about lockups with an unactivated unit and V11.
