Re: orion vcr recording
BOB WHAT ORION VCR DO YOU HAVE ? I HAD THE ORION M# -VH0211 AND I WAS ABLE TO CHANGE THE RECORD SPEED ONLY WHEN I SETTING THE TIMER. . NOW I JUST FOUND ANOTHER ORION M#-VH0220 BUT IT WILL NOT EVEN LET ME SET RECORD SPEED WITH THE TIMER. THE REMOTE I'M USING IS A UNIVERSAL RCA THAT I WAS ABLE TO MAKE WORK EXCEPT FOR THE RECORDING SPEED SETTING. .. SO IF YOU HAVE THAT MODEL . .I GUESS WE WILL HAVE TO FIND THE ORIGINAL REMOTE . .OR LIKE ME JUST RECORD WITH SP ...MORE COST BUT AT LEAST THE QUALITY WILL BE GOOD. . .. GOOD LUCK ! JERRYUUC

Hi,you should have on your remote a button call rec speed or speed
or on the front panel behind the door...some vcr got only two speed choice slp and sp mode when you find the button speed pres rec and pause then change the speed you need..
I'm sorry but, there is no way to set the speed without the remote. Last time I checked a remote for a VR213 was less than $15.00 delivered. Just FYI. If you change your mind call the number on the unit. Sorry. No magic bullits.
it will automatically play at the speed the tape was recorded at. but if you want to change record speeds here's how: you should be able to access menu functions from the front of the vcr, if so, put a tape to be recorded into the unit and then set the timer for a couple of minutes.while you are on the timer menu it will ask you for recording speed. set the timer record speed to ep and let it record for two minutes and let it record for the full time untill it stops recording. the record speed will automatically change settings to whatever you used last on timer record.
The only solution to this problem is to buy a new remote from the manufacturer. Aftermarket remotes that I have looked at: RCA, PHILLIPS, SONY, etc do not have a speed select button for the VCR. (which IMHO is stupid) Come on aftermarket people- it cant be that hard to program a speed select button!
Most late VCRs require the remote box to set the clock, timed recording etc. Assuming you have the Orion remote, it should have a programming or menu button, and the function you need can be selected from a list of options.
If the remote is an aftermarket unit (non-Orion), it must have the capability to do the advanced setup (clock set etc.). Many aftermarket remotes only do basic channel selection, and tape functions (play, rewind, stop, etc.).
Is this an older VCR? If you can set the timer on the VCR itself
like on an older model you can set the timer and set it to record
in another speed. But if you can't do this. You are stuck at
recording in sp. If you can set the timer, if you make just
one mistake it may not come on at all. That's why vcrs
are not as reliable as dvrs. if you don't want to miss a show
diffinatly make sure you re at home and see it come on
like fill up the whole tape and put the show on the end of the tape. like a 2 hour movie comes on a 8pm-10pm set the
timer at ep speed to come on at 4:05pm- 10:05pm and put a 2 hour tape in it. in ep it will record for 6 hours. tape will stop
automatically so you will record it, and it will be on the tape
at the end. that's the way i do it. if I'm not going to be at home
if i really don't want to miss a show at all. because when you set the timer it still might not come on if you see it on you know
its going to record it.
note its cheaper to just buy a new vcr than buying a $72 remote.
you might as well do that if it is a newer model.
I bought an older model vcr in a thrift store for $10 and it worked good for a year for recording shows. I got lucky I guess.
it didn't have a remote I use the timer to set the ep speed
