dig around for old calendars or maybe the internet. compare dates. like for example. (my birhtay) july 12 in 1998 was a sunday. in 2009 july 12 was also a sunday. so u know that all dates in 2009 will line up with 1998. so in setting the vcr, make like its 98.
My Solution for Mitsubishi HS-U500 VCR setting the date for 2008 and beyond:
I had same problem with this old unit as everyone else has. Since the year really doesn't matter (except maybe when you're setting to tape near a new year), here's how to get the day and dates correct:
On the remote, push Menu button, then select "First time setup", then select "Set the Clock", then select the month. Now, start adjusting the YEAR and watch how the "days" change with the years. Adjust the years so that the "Day" (Monday, Tuesday, etc.) matches the date (1,2, 22, 23, 28, etc.) in the month. Then cycle thru the rest of the items and get out by hitting menu button again.
That's it! That's my quicky solution. Caveat: This may not be permanent with leap years and the like, so you may need to check it from time to time to make sure the days match up with the dates. But you can do this when you go to set up for timed taping. Hope that "FIXes" it for "Ya"!

You have the remote box? Most functions, clock/date set, channel add/delete and so on are done with the remote, and cannot be so done with the limited buttons on the VCR itself. Early VCRS (pre-90s) were setup with these VCR located buttons.
