help / suggestions: cable install without modem/equipment
So I'll spare you the sob story, but the Amazon order for my (bring my own) cable modem/TiVo is now NOT going to arrive before the cable tech comes to do the install.
I know in *theory* the installer should be able to verify/validate service to the demarc when they arrive, but I'm also a little worried that when they show up and there is no TiVo or cable modem to actually work with, that's going to be a problem. Anyone have suggestions on what I can do to hopefully avoid a second visit for the install itself?
This is a TWC install in the Raleigh NC area - the home *has* had TWC running at some point in the past, but not for at least 2 or 3 years.
