Question about Toshiba M674 VHS VCR
I have a Toshiba M674. I lost the remote and I can't change the tape speed to record anything other than on SP. I have several movies on my DVR that I want to record onto a Tape but won't fit on this setting. I have a Zenith Universal Remote but can't get it to work with the VCR. Can you tell me if there is any way to change the speed without having to buy a $72 replacement remote from Toshiba?
You could check ebay for the specific remote,
would be cheaper then paying the 72 bucks,
I'm looking for a universal remote with that feature as well though

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
