[How to] Clone settings from one machine to another via SD card
#1
I took advantage of Resmed's 20% price drop and bought another S9AutoSet so that I could have a backup machine. On the one I just purchased, I had some different settings put in it to make my therapy better, not that I was having problems, I just thought I could improve upon it. Anyway,I said all that to ask the following question: Can I clone my new settings from my new machine to my old machine via SD card, or do I have to do a few jiggs ans say some incantations to get that to work, (Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha)?

With a Respironics machine there is a way to store the pressure setting onto a SD card, but then if you ever want to change that pressure you'll have to also change it on the SD card. It's not worth the hassle.

If they are identical machines I would think you could transfer the settings from the old to the new. Don't think the machines can tell the difference between memory chips. It might transfer the historical data, too.

But only if the settings are kept on the card. Yes, a history of them may be, but the actual "when reading this, do this" may not be on there.
