Access to 722 menu without card?

Is it possible to get to the menu (point dish) without a sub card?
If I can this saves me from having to tear out my 622 and all the wires to help point a 1000.4 dish.

Oh, let me clarify, I just bought the 722, should be here by the end of the week.
Im replacing my 622 and the two dishes I am currently using and rather than tear out the 622 and wires I hope to use the 722 to help aim the 1000.4, then sell the 622.

I do not lease.
This whole thing became confusing to me...

1. If your 622 is in service right now, why can't you install the Dish right now and point it using existing 622 and wiring?

2. If you don't have the 722 yet, what makes you think it doesn't have an access card? What even prompted that question?

With this additional information, I don't understand where the difficulty or hang up is...
That sounds like a 722K instead of a 722.

The 722K has an optional OTA module that provides two OTA tuners... and I can't remember for sure, but I don't think it had an S-video connection.
This just makes me even more confused.

So... why couldn't you use the 622 at a dish pointer? What was the point of buying the 722 when for all intents and purposes, you really didn't need it to do anything the 622 didn't already do?
