Are these numbers required to activate the card? I supplied a HostID and Card ID that appeared in the Pairing display on the TiVo. A CSR asked for the cable card model, but I didn't know it. I'll try to call with this info tomorrow.

Of course, the tech that came to my house had never seen a cableCARD and only supplied the Serial Number when he called his dispatcher.
The Serial number will "attach" the cablecard to your account so it can access the programming you subscribe to.

The HostID/CardID will marry the card to your set.
