We perhaps could have been of use, when you had told us in the first place what brand and model your recorder is. For the VCR part, some recorders do have a setting in the menu, to switch to LP (long play) but not all records have this option. So when the manual does not offer this option, your recorder can't.
When you post the details of your recorder, perhaps I manage to find the specs and will be able to tell you what your recorder can and can't. Give me a day, because it is bed time for me.
Yes, the camcorder will record for two hours. The two biggest limiting factors are the memory cards and the batteries. Depending on the resolution, you may need a second card. You may also need a fresh set of batteries. I don't know how a "basetball" game is organized, but if you're taping a baseball game, you should be able to swap memory cards and/or batteries between innings. If you're taping a basketball game, you should be able to do the same at halftime.
1. On your remote, find the record mode button; it is near the bottom on the left side. This button sets the recording speed for the DVR. Faster recording speeds provide higher quality recordings. 2. Look at the display on the front of the machine: it should say XP ( records 1 hour on the disc,) SP ( 2 hours, ) LP ( 4 hours, ) or EP ( 6 hours. ) You can also set it to record 8 hours on a disc, but the quality of the recording will be poor. 3 Press the record mode button until the screen displays the recording speed that you want. 4 Note: if the powers fails or the Machine is unplugged, the machine will automatically reset itself to SP mode.
Sorry, but as far as I know, Hitachi camcorders cannot record video directly onto an SD card. You have to set the camcorder to DVD. It can only record video and pictures on a DVD, and only pictures on an SD card.
Power up camera on Camera mode, go to menu, select camera settings, go to Record Mode and select SP or LP there. Now your camera is ready to record as per selection.
You can not change speed SP/LP during playback mode because its properties of signal set during recording.
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
