Changing the Recording speed from SP to EP on TV/VCR Combo using universal remote?

I have a Sanyo DS13TVR90 TV/VCR Combo that I need to change the recording speed. I am using a universal remote for it which works for everything else on the set. I just can't figure out how to change the speed. Help! Oh the remote is a Zenith Universal Remote Control...Maybe the model number for this is ZN311?

Re: Changing the Recording speed from SP to EP on TV/VCR...

I am sorry to have to tell you this, but the only way to change the recording speed is with an original remote. If you look on the original replacement remote link I posted here you will see the SP/EP selector, this is to change the recording speed. Good Luck.

I cannot find my manual what is the speed to record on the vcr for 8 hours

Unfortunately, most VCR recorders/tapes don't have an 8 hour option. It is 2 hours on SP (standard), LP for 4 hours or EP (SLP, depending on the unit) for 6 hours. (The slower recording speed usually gives poorer video quality.)

You would need a non-standard VCR cassette to get 8 hour recording. If you do have a tape that would hold 3 hours at SP, then use an EP setting to get 8 hours of recording on your VCR. I don't think I've seen any tapes that do that recording length even when VCRs were popular.

I wish that I had better news.

I bought a tv/vcr combo from a guy no remote no manual i have a universal remote for it i am trying to run the tape in ep mode but i cant get it to change over i see the option for it in the menu i can...

sometimes a universal remote will lack certain functions like that or label them differently if possible put it on the vcr controls and try to scroll down to the ep input alot of the time it will be in between 99-01 unfortunately you may need to contact the manufacturer and see about downloading a manual for it if you would like us to please just leave the model number and make of both tv and remote and we can run a compatibility test to ensure you should be getting full function

Vcr recording speeds

Yes. SP is "Standard Play" and LP is "Long Play", while EP/SLP are short for Extended Play/Super Long Play respectively.

Rca tv/vcr combo model T13208

Recording speed is the last item on the timer programming. SP or SLP. Some remotes have a button that will allow you to change the speed, when recording manually.

Can I change the recording speed from SP to EP without the remote

I alreay figured it out on my own! However, if you'd like to pay me the "premium" price maybe I could help you out. What a joke this site is. Anyone who pays for simple advice to a site like yours is a ****** or really has no knowledge of the internet that you scam their money out of them. What a deal, the general public answers all your questions for you and a couple of A-Holes collect all the money. Scum Bags!

How can I turn to AV without a remote control (Samsung TV/VCR 19in Combo)

I had this problem with my TV/VCR combo unit (Samsung CXC1972) after losing the remote while in the dorms. I tried a few different universal remotes and dozens of codes before I tried the Philips 3 device universal remote as pictured below with code 037 programmed into the VCR/DVD button. I can't change the volume with this code but the input key switches between line in and tv. You can also change the channel, access the menu and operate the VCR functions with the code. I bought the remote for less than $10 at Walmart so it might be worth a try, and if it doesn't work you can always bring it back. Hope this helps.98fe8a9.jpg
