DreamStation 2, DreamMapper, Oh-oh!!

DreamStation 2, DreamMapper, Oh-oh!!
I received a DreamStation 2 via FEDEX this morning to replace my DS1 under the recall. My intention is to continue to use the DreamStation 1 at least for a while longer as I'm not that all concerned about the foam issues. I did however after unpacking the DS2 plug it in to ensure it powered up and to play with the menu system a bit. When it was first powered up it decided to call 'home' and grab my settings at which I thought, OK that's good (maybe). A little while later I went into the DreamMapper software (Desktop Windows PC) and noticed a new message in the 'Feed'. The message kind of hinted that DreamMapper knew I had a new machine which prompted me to look at the settings where I discovered the DreamStation 2 had taken up residence as my primary device. Since I plan on using the DS1 a while longer and then potentially as a backup machine later, I didn't really want the unintended change to the DS2 as of yet. I was able to enter the serial number of the DS1 into the secondary device space and it saved it, but I won't know for a another day if the data from the DS1 will log the data when it calls in. The DreamMapper software allows me a quick daily check in the morning of how the night went and I can compare it to data from an O2Ring and Fitbit, all done in a desktop PC. 
Should I anticipate any problems having the DS1 listed as a secondary device which I manually entered? I'm presuming DreamMapper will pull in the data of either machine, but I can't find anything on the Philips/Respironics site that states that it would do that.

The data from the CPAP is transferred to your phone by Bluetooth, then uploaded to the server. The server then sends the stats to the app over the Internet connection. You might have lost your historical data from your DS1 except for what is on your SD card.

I use neither a phone or a tablet is access the DS1, no Bluetooth transfers. All data transfer is performed via the cell modem to the server which is then accessible via an internet connection with the desktop PC. As of this morning all historical data is still present in DreamMapper when accessed through the internet, but no data set from last night at the moment from the DS1 which is now the secondary device to the DS2 which is now the primary. I'm hoping later in the morning that the DS1 data shows up, but not sure it will where it's now the secondary.
