I have an admiral vcr and the remote is broken As far as I can see the remote was the only way to change te tape speed. There is nothing on the menu options and nothing on the device itself. Am I missing something? Is there something else I can do to change the speed?

Use the remote to get into the setup menus. There may be an option to change tape speed when recording. Alternatively, when you press record on the remote (or deck), you may have option to change the tape speed there.
The VCR part of your deck may be able to playback, but not record in SLP mode.
Searched around for the manual for your machine, and though there are references to it, it appears that a manual / information page doesn't exist for the model # that you listed.
YOU CAN USE EMERSON CODES FOR YOUR ADMIRAL TV AND TV / VCR COMBOS, MY COMCAST REMOTE ACCEPTED 11911. SOME REMOTES NEED FIVE NUMBERS AND MY ADMIRAL ONLY HAS THREE. SO I USED AN EMERSON CODE AND IT WORKED MOST OF THE BELLS, NOT ALL WHISTLES WORKED BUT I DIDN'T HAVE TO GET UP TO TURN IT ON, CHANGE THE CHANNEL OR THE VOLUME. MY KIDS WON'T DO IT ANY MORE!! GOOD LUCK!!!!!
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
