Almost universal VCR remote control
A One for All URC 3445 will do almost all on-screen menu functions as well
as transport functions, but .
No explicit OK or Select button on this remote, the Mute button at the
centre of the 4 arrow keys is supposed to double as OK according to the
This button works in TV mode as mute etc but no send LED when pushed in VCR
In close succession to pressing Menu or arrow keys it will function as OK.
So its possible to change preset channels, set clock etc by letting the
selection stand and closing the menu down back to normal function.
eg to change modulator RF out channel it is a matter of pushing in rapid
succession Menu/Down/Down/Mute/Down/Mute to get to the relevant selection ,
press 33 for channel 33 and then exit by pressing Menu.
But in timed/programmme record setting
it is necessary to go back to a previous menu to store and Mute will not
function then, exiting Menu directly loses the values. Anyone any ideas ?
