Which is better to record with SP or SLP?


HELLO!
The answer to this is simple....SP every time. That is of course you want to cram lots of programmes on to one tape and if that is so, then use LP.
LP slows the tape to half of normal speed and therefore sound and vision are slightly compromised. For maximum quality, SP.

Recording


I'm going to venture a guess that what might have happened is you changed the mode of recording. VCRs record in either short play, or long play, or even super long play. As the length of playtime goes up, the quality goes down, because for short play, a 6 hr tape will record only two, whereas a 12 hour tape will record four hours. More information is stored on the tape, so the quality of picture and sound increase, but a longer movie could be cut off. You can adjust the play-length with the sp/slp buttons on your remote control.

DSR 11 won't record DV tape to its end


You need to use longer tapes. The DER-11 is a DVCAM deck which when recording, uses a faster tape speed then mini DV. Think of your older VCR's. They had SP, two hours, and EP or SLP, which would be six hours. The SP speed would give a better picture. DVCAM is more like an SP recording except digital and a lot better. More information is laid down on the tape.

You'll have to jump up to the full size DVCAM tapes in order to record the full hour.

I have no remoteand want to change the speed from sp to slp


PVW-2800 is a commercial recording deck for BetaSP tapes. There is no wireless remote, and only one recording speed. Menu is only displayed on the "super" output.

Changing from sp to ep


it will automatically play at the speed the tape was recorded at. but if you want to change record speeds here's how: you should be able to access menu functions from the front of the vcr, if so, put a tape to be recorded into the unit and then set the timer for a couple of minutes.while you are on the timer menu it will ask you for recording speed. set the timer record speed to ep and let it record for two minutes and let it record for the full time untill it stops recording. the record speed will automatically change settings to whatever you used last on timer record.

How to set the tape lenght when recording


on older vcr's there should be a sp/slp or ep button on your remote or vcr. if not when you set a program to record, the option to choose should be there. sp= 2 hrs, ep =6 hrs.

Speed


I assume by "last longer" you mean more record/play time.  The slp mode is the slower tape speed, which means longer record/play time.  The trade-off with the slower speed is poorer video quality.

As regards tape life, if this is what you mean- I don't know- tape life is often a matter of the quality of the tape itself.

Toshiba M674 Lost Remote can't change tape speed


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
to record.
