My remote is no where to be found and I can't figure out how to get to the analog setting to play a record by using the buttons on the turntable instead of the remote. Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: stuck on the radio setting
You didn't mention which Autorama unit you have. I will assume it is the one with the CD player, as this is the only one with a remote control. After going through the service manual and user manual, I see no option - other than on the remote - for a PHONO switch option (not a very smart design).
Not sure if you've found a solution, but if you have not, then I would suggest contacting Crosley Radios for support on this - you might get a free remote from them:

Hope this helps some.

Something is overriding the Play function. Perhaps on the remote itself or in the machine's hardware switches. Hide all the remotes. Try the front panel Play button. Works? Figure out which remote is causing it.
Still not working? Turn it OFF. Manipulate all controls to make sure they're not 'stuck'. Try again.
"Recieved unit as christmas present 2007, setup unit enjoyed playing remote radio function, family member shutoff unit using main power button when going to bed, the next day unit does not come on period...the unit was stacked upon vcr and satellite units thought problem was due to electronic heat, but upon further exams, have yet to determine cause...during internet searches, found others having same/or multiple problems..further check tells me company out of business...recommend buyer beware...as repair nearly impossible...unless electronically inclined..firstname.lastname@example.org"
Assuming you have recording software on your machine already: (GoldWave, Audacity...)
Plug the USB cable into the back of the ADS and into the computer
Connect a line-level analog audio source (tape player, turntable, radio, amplifier, etc.) to the ADS using the appropriate cable to fit the source on the one end and has RCA connectors on the other - plug into the Audio In jacks (Red and White)
Ensure that the recording source on the computer is set to the appropriate USB port
Select record in the software and start the analog source playing
Note: If you are using a microphone, make sure it is amplified to line-level before using as a source.
It sounds liek your remote control button is sticking inside a bit.
To test it, have it playing, and hide the remote under a cushion so it can't possibly send a signal to the main unit.
Sometimes the rubber buttons need cleaning underneath, even though they don't appear to be stuck down at all.
Its also possible that the remote is actually just going faulty emitting fake signals. I have a HiFi that turns on and starts the radio all on its own (spooky!!!). I found its the remote occasionally sends a radio-on signal about once a week to the HiFi :)
I just hide the remote now unless i'm using the thing.
Yes, but you, like I could use an owners manual for this thing, as it isn't as easy to operate as the Philips Audio CD recorders. Owner's manual anyone?
You can just press input select for analog, press record, wait then press 'play' to start recording.
I kind of think the people that wrote the manuals didn't bother hooking up a unit. Here is some help.
The converter box is nothing more then a tv tuner that picks up a digital signal and converts it into analog so your tv can view it.
The vcr, to record programs has to be set to channel 3 or 4 (whatever the converter box is broadcasting on) to record. The converter for the vcr will have to set to whatever channel you want to record from every time you use the vcr and left on as this is the only was the vcr can pick up a signal. Make sure the power saver on the converter box is set to off.
If your tv converter box has digital pass through, all you have to do is turn the tv converter box off and it your tv should pick up the singal from your vcr when you play tapes. You also use this method to access the menu on the vcr.
Did you install the driver for the remote control? In either case, the video will automatically start playing on your computer but not recording. You can just click on the record icon without using the remote. It sets up a folder under your Documents. It should then show you the icon so you can name the file.
I am having the same issue with the sound though. Haven't yet solved it. Will post the solution if found
You have to use the RCA plugs on the back of the converter box and the tv (red,yellow and white). Or you can attach the antenna wire to box and then attach the wire that comes with the converter that is listed as to the tv and instead attach it to the antenna in on the vcr. The converter box will determine which channel your vcr will get a singal to record from. Your VCR for every program will be set to channel 3 or 4 (depending on what your converter box is set to broadcast on). Make sure the power saver on the converter box is turned off as if you want to record a program in say 4 hours, if the converter box turns off in 2, your vcr will have nothing to record.
I ran seperate coaxible cable to the tv from vcr and unplug the tv converter box everytime I want to watch the vcr. You can also use the RCA cord to send the signal from the vcr to the tv and use the input signal to watch your recorded programs. I had static showing up everytime I played it through the second converter box thus I solved it by running a seperate coax line. I don't know if you will have this problem, just wanted you to be aware.
I never had that problems. I have been using it over five years. Does it play commercially made CDs (the ones you bought at the store)? Panel shows track numbers and sound volume? Can you hear it by using a head set (phone volume control turned up? If so, now recording part, do you have input select correct (analog or digital)? Input cable(s) into right connector(s)? When you press "record" button, does it put into "pause" mode? Can you watch the incoming sound levels when it is on "pause" mode? Can you start the recording with remote's fader button or play/pause button on the machine? Good luck.
