    I just swapped the old hopper with the new hopper with sling. I was expecting to have to rebuild my timers and favorites list, but once I finished setting up the system, I found that they were already set on the new hopper. Are these backed up on the Joey so when I relinked the Joey, it restored my settings?

    I know the settings and timers CAN be saved in the remote, but it isn't automatic from what I've read.

    Restoring to a replacement receiver is automatic, it restores immediately after linking the remote.

    I did not know that, thanks.

    But you still have to manually save it to the remote, right???

    I had not saved my settings to the remote in a while, but the timers and favorites seemed to be up to date.
