Using "> /dev/null 2>&1" in 11g RMan

Being new to 11g, I just found out that &1, &2 sqlplus-type substitution variables can be used in RMan. I have 10g RMan scripts in which I redirect output from some Host commands via "> /dev/null 2>&1". Of course 11g RMan now asks for the value of &1. After searching the docs and Googling, I still can't find out how to change & to, say ~, using something like the sqlplus Set Define command. Can this be done in 11g RMan?
