Can I transfer info from one 722k to another?

I'm getting a replacement 722k today. I thought I read somewhere that I could transfer things like scheduled recordings and guides from one 722k to another using the remote. I know I can't transfer already recorded programs without using an external hard drive, but I thought the other info could be transferred. Maybe I'm thinking of something else. Called DISH today and they said it couldn't be done. Tried to do a search and also checked the user's manual and couldn't find what I was looking for. Did I just dream that?

And reading in many other places, 'flakey' is a good term to use when describing the process, imo.

My 722k is dead and a new one is on the way from Dish. I'd like to restore my timers, if possible, but didn't do anything proactively to save settings to the remote.
