transfer recording settings

I am expecting a replacement Genie2 and am looking to transfer my recording settings from old device to new device. Note I want to transfer settings and not specifically the actual recordings.

Unfortunately nothing is transferable between any boxes. You set up the new box fresh any time you get one replaced, whether by upgrade or warranty.

Like the recordings, settings are non-transferable. It is recommended to take a picture of upcoming series manager recordings in order to set them up on the new receiver.

Good luck setting up your old programs on the new DVR! If you have over 90 season passes like me, the majority of them are not currently on.  It will take you months, or over a year, to get them all set up again. It's outrageous that DirecTV hasn't given us the ability to transfer these settings somehow.

Overall I think it’s a very poorly thought out system and sadly options are very limited where we are. Hopefully one day I can switch to 100% streaming solution and dump satellite. It really would not be hard to add ability to export recording settings and import, never mind making it a one click solution.
