    I too have this problem. Does anyone know if any universal remotes will be able to work the menu functions? Also would you use set-up codes for a TV or VCR if the combo is not specified?

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.

How do i program a panosonic video cassettee recorder model pv-7450 using the front buttons cause i lost the remonte

Unfortunately, you can not do a programmed recording with the PV-7450 without the remote. You can do a one-touch (current channel/time) recording. To do this, use the channel buttons to select the desired channel and make sure that a tape with the record tab is in the VCR. Then press Rec/Time (the right-most button) several times to select the recording length. Press Stop to end the recording.

To do a programmed recording, you need the Prog button on the remote. (You may be able to find a universal remote that matches the function if you try enough of the codes for Panasonic VCRs.) There is no matching button on the VCR front-panel.

This is shown in the manual for the Panasonic Omnivision PV-7450, https://www.manualslib.com/manual/305336/Panasonic-Omnivision-Pv-7200.html#product-Omnivision%20PV-7450 . See page 16 for the One-time recording feature. See page 18 for timed recording. I wish that I had better news for you.

How do I program this VCR for a daily program M-F?

The option should come up when you set a recording. The menu screen should tell you which button to press. Or you might need to use the arrow keys to get the point and press enter. Though I see that your model does not have a remote. This will make it very difficult to change it. I suggest you get a replacement remote or universal one.

Need remote code to control a Panasonic Omnivision VHS PV-M2079 TV/VCR combination

You need to program the VCR (which turns the sey on/off) as an aux, then program any Panasonic TV type for TV, and then set the STB button to control STB, TV and AUX and you should be set.

You do not need the remote - you can access the menu manually.
  1. Take out (eject) the tape;
  2. press the 2 Channel buttons ("up" and "down") simultaneously;
  3. follow the menu as easily as you did when you did have the remote and you can change all the clock settings;
  4. press the FF button for >, the REW button for <, the PLAY button for UP and the STOP button for DOWN.
  5. when finished, exit the menu with the simultaneous pressing of the Channel UP & DOWN buttons.
