Re: Lost the remote, manually need to access Menu button
VCRs since the early '90s have limited function with the machine located controls, and a remote is necessary to get into most setup options, probably including the channel add/delete. Many VCRs do have an auto program mode which searches for active channels, but I'd guess this also is activated via remote.
A universal remote which specifically has the capability of performing the advanced functions is probably available. Look here for an exact http://www.electronicadventure.us/panasonic.htm Part number is VSQS1418 according to this site for PV4501.

cable box needs connected to the antenna in on the vcr..the setup is ..cable box..vcr combo ..tv ..unless your tv has multiple inputs like ours..most of the new ones require a digital signal..it may reqiure a converter box..
If you have the remote for the unit, with the incoming cable connected to the unit, on the remote, press menu/set up button, once in channel set up, select auto search...it may take a couple minutes for all the channels to be found...once complete, select done/exit, or press the menu/set up button again to exit.
A universal remote can be programmed for your tv/vcr. Then you can access the menu to auto program your tv. Otherwise there should be a button on the front that allows you to access the menu and then auto program the unit.
They claim that if you leave the set unplug from the wall for about 10 minutes and then plug it back in and ushing the power button the set will auto program all the channels available,Without the remote is possible but not as easy,in the front of the set you have the stop/eject button and the REW button,if you press both buttons at the same time a MENU(display) should come up on the screen,keep pressing action until the CH square is highlighted then use the arrows up or down until antenna is selected the use the arrows left or right to change it to Cable,once is in the cable mode go down one more to auto set and press the arrow to the right and it should auto program all the available channels. I hope I made sense but just in case here is the link to the owners manual http://www2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/vProdSupportResults?storeId=15001 ,it can be done.You can use my name in a new question to let me know how it goes ir if you need more information.
