Changing the Recording speed from SP to EP on TV/VCR Combo using universal remote?
I have a Sanyo DS13TVR90 TV/VCR Combo that I need to change the recording speed. I am using a universal remote for it which works for everything else on the set. I just can't figure out how to change the speed. Help!
Oh the remote is a Zenith Universal Remote Control...Maybe the model number for this is ZN311?

Re: Changing the Recording speed from SP to EP on TV/VCR...
I am sorry to have to tell you this, but the only way to change the recording speed is with an original remote. If you look on the original replacement remote link I posted here you will see the SP/EP selector, this is to change the recording speed. Good Luck. http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&smodel=DS13TVR90&brand_pn=FISHER_DS13TVR90&mode=large&uid=11755283300930

Unfortunately, most VCR recorders/tapes don't have an 8 hour option. It is 2 hours on SP (standard), LP for 4 hours or EP (SLP, depending on the unit) for 6 hours. (The slower recording speed usually gives poorer video quality.)
You would need a non-standard VCR cassette to get 8 hour recording. If you do have a tape that would hold 3 hours at SP, then use an EP setting to get 8 hours of recording on your VCR. I don't think I've seen any tapes that do that recording length even when VCRs were popular.
sometimes a universal remote will lack certain functions like that or label them differently if possible put it on the vcr controls and try to scroll down to the ep input alot of the time it will be in between 99-01 unfortunately you may need to contact the manufacturer and see about downloading a manual for it if you would like us to please just leave the model number and make of both tv and remote and we can run a compatibility test to ensure you should be getting full function
I solved it myself by selecting guide on the remote, then the tv screen said enter plus code. ijust type in all 0's for each space given (0000000) then the setting instantly changrd to EP from SP. I pushed set on the universal remote , that was it. It was necessary to use the power button to turn vcr off like tthe TV screen said because I was just setting the timer. You can just go to menu or whatever next. I didn't appreciate FixYa trying to sell me a membership before even attempting to offer a solution. They could have at least faked trying to find a solution. Instant response we would like to offer our premium services ....
Hi; I have a Panasonic VCR with a different, but I know how to 'fix' your problem on my m/c. The remote for my m/c has a "REC MODE" button; operating that button changes from SP to EP etc. Check it with the "Program" button on your TV screen. harrisonmx3
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.
