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?

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.

Need Remote fo RCA DRC8312N DVD-VCR Combo Thanks, Monte Haun

My original remote malfunctioned for my RCA DRC8312N. I have purchased a RCA universal remote # RCR6473. I have used code # 3242 for the DVD code.It does almost everything that the original remote did except to open the DVD door. You just need to experiment with the onscreen info display in order to change title names and thumbnails etc. The remote also works great for other euipment functions as well as working features on my Sharp tv.

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

Sony - SLV-685HF -vcr using universal remote one for all 3021 can't change recording from sp to ep so I can record more on tape. vcr says auto, or 180 in speed setting always records sp. I just want to pop...

I solved it myself by selecting guide on the remote, then the tv screen said enter plus code. ijust type in all 0's for each space given (0000000) then the setting instantly changrd to EP from SP. I pushed set on the universal remote , that was it.
It was necessary to use the power button to turn vcr off like tthe TV screen said because I was just setting the timer. You can just go to menu or whatever next.
I didn't appreciate FixYa trying to sell me a membership before even
attempting to offer a solution. They could have at least faked trying to find a solution. Instant response we would like to offer our premium services ....

Sanyo dvd/vcr combo

Your universal remote would have seperate selection buttons for VCR and DVD. If you don't have a VCR button, use AUX. Try programming each function seperately - DVD code for your manufactirer on the DVD button and VCR code for your manufacturer on the VCR button.

Change VCR settings from SP to LP or EP

I have a Panasonic VCR with a different, but I know how to 'fix' your problem on my m/c. The remote for my m/c has a "REC MODE" button; operating that button changes from SP to EP etc. Check it with the "Program" button on your TV screen.

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.
