Default Preparing for FIOS install

Hello everyone. I have Verizon coming tomorrow to install their triple play service. I am trying to prepare for this by running coax in the walls to my tvs and computer (I currently have satellite and don't like the way the wires for it were run). Can anyone out there tell me if I've prepared correctly. I have three tvs. One gets a multi room DVR and the other two get hi def set top boxes and then a computer in another room. So far I have run RG6 Quad coax to each tv and one to the computer for a total of four wires. I have the wires terminating in my basement right by a large wooden board that I mounted on the wall with a 110 volt outlet on it. Will this be enough or is there something more I should do to prepare for the tech? Thanks for any responses.

Sounds good, especially that you've used RG6 coax. If the splitter isn't the correct type, the technician will replace it.

It sounds pretty good, AND ENVIABLE. It sounds like you have your bases covered. I presume the phone witing is handled the same way?
I wish I never again had to look at a cable along the wall molding.
I had all interior wiring in my last newer apartment and it was a delight when I cahanged cable companies...one connection changed in a closet, but now, in an older place, I have crap stapled around the place.

And if I ever switch to Time Warner becasue of pricing, even more crap because they cannot use the glass wiring.
