Okey doke got given an old VCR and it plays beautifully, however I would love to be able to record stuff from the idiot box, but all the recording functions appear to have been on the missing remote
The VCR is a JVC - HR-J291EA
whatever that means, Most of the universal remotes i have seen don't seem to support record functions, and the price of a replacement remote is a bit of joke considering VCRs are so near to extinction. Kind of hoping someone has an old remote lying around for one of these.
And yes i know I should get a freeview recording box thingie, but i am saving that until i have actually managed to get a proper job, doing odd jobs is just not reliable.
