If you have the remote that came with the recorder,there should be a speed button on the remote for changing.All of them do.If that button is not on there,maybe it is not an option anymore.It could be labeled SP or something like that.If you do not see either one,you will have to either play with the buttons during a practice recording,or contact Toshiba to find out.Anyhow with our recorder,when we do record at lower speeds,it comes out pretty bad.The picture jumps like in the old days when you had to vertical adjust.I searched the internet and Toshiba's website and could not even find your model there on a search for a manual.If you run out of options/ideas,you can at least call them to find out.Here is the link.Good luck!Greg

How do I change EP,SP,and other?


Hi,
As you may know, the EP,SP issue is related with VCR function (Recording ) only..
it is selectable only before recording session starts..while it plays any VHS cassette whatever the speed is , it selects automatically..there should be either a small switch in control panel or in the recording speed in "SET UP MENU "

let me know if it does not work out..

How do I change the vcr to 'SLP' - it seems to be stuck on 'SP'. (There is no "speed" button on my remote.)


Use the remote to get into the setup menus. There may be an option to change tape speed when recording. Alternatively, when you press record on the remote (or deck), you may have option to change the tape speed there.

The VCR part of your deck may be able to playback, but not record in SLP mode.

Searched around for the manual for your machine, and though there are references to it, it appears that a manual / information page doesn't exist for the model # that you listed.

I have a Sylvania DVD Recorder/VCR. The DVD Recorder records in SP mode only. How do i change the Recording mode to something other than SP?


There should be a speed button on the remote or a similar button if you are just hitting the record button on the remote to start the recording. You can change it after you start recording. Otherwise if you are setting the record time in the menu itself, then the option is in the menu. If you are still unable to figure this out, please give me the model number of both the player and remote that you are using and I can tell you what to press exactly.
Let me know how this works out for you.

Dubbing from VCR to DVD


Dont use xp mode. Here are the definitions:
SP is short for Standard Play. Standard play allows you to record information onto the tape the way it was intended, with no quality loss. By default, VCRs and camcorders will record your footage as standard play. On a standard VHS tape, recording footage in SP mode will yield 2 hours of video.
LP is short for Long Play. Long play allows you to record much more information at the expense of quality. It accomplishes this by reducing the speed the tape is run through the VCR. As the tape speed decreases, the quality will also decrease. You’ll notice this effect when comparing a tape recorded at LP versus one recorded at SP, especially after years of storage. The LP tape will appear more blurred, have more tracking and color issues than tapes recorded at SP. A VHS tape recorded at LP can hold roughly 4 hours of video.
EP/SLP is short for extended play. Extended play is similar to LP, but actually provides you even more recording time. EP was primarily used to document long, continuous events without the need to change video tapes every 2 hours. Due to the fact that the video is not of optimal quality, many times this setting was not used in order to preserve the quality of your footage. Tapes recorded at EP usually are the most problematic after years of storage, displaying a wide variety of tape damage symptoms including color loss, audio loss, frame skipping, and tracking issues.

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.

VCR to DVD Dub Out of Synch


FIRST THING YOU HAVE TO DO IS HAVE YOUR DVD RECORDERS LENS AND DRIVE CLEANED ALSO MAKE SURE THE VCR HEADS ARE CLEANED ALSO.

NEXT WHEN RECORDING make sure the format of the tape(speed like sp & lp are the same as the dvd recording speed(sp& lp are the same before starting recording.

Recording time


put the machine in dvd mode and press the rec mode button on the remote(right next to the rec button on the bottom) hit the button until you get to the desired mode. i just changed mine and i am copying now from vhs to dvd and it did say it is recording in ep mode, so fingers crossed!

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.
