    I bought this new VCR at WAL-MART 2 months ago:




    * Orion VR213 2-Head VCR VR213 ( VR-213, VR 213 ), One-touch
    recordingEnglish, Spanish and French on-screen displays, Front
    audio/video input jacks, 8-event, 1-month programming, Remote control,
    Energy Star-compliant

    One-touch recording

    English, Spanish and French on-screen displays

    Front audio/video input jacks

    8-event, 1-month programming

    Remote control

    Energy Star-compliant




    I bought RCA Universal Remote :

    RCA Platinum Universal Remote Control



    This sleek, platinum finished RCA Universal Remote controls primary
    functions of many brands of remote controllable televisions, VCRs,
    Cable Boxes and SAT/AUX devices. To add to the functionality of this
    remote we have included a menu key, code search, code saver and an
    extensive code library.

    * Controls TV, VCR, Cable Box and SAT/AUX
    * Menu key
    * Code Search
    * Code saver
    * Universal DBS codes
    * Extensive Code Library
    * Sleep Timer




    Problem is with the code the remote says to use everything works
    except the MENU command that allow me to setup the clock, timer, etc.
    The code was 031. What am I doing wrong?.

    We have never seen a universal remote that is fully functional as like the
    original type. It is recommended that for doing the TV's set-ups, you use
    the original remote.

    James:
    Usually there is a "800" help phone number with most of these universal
    remote controls included in the instructions...... give them a call and see
    if they can help you.
    By the way, I always use the OEM factory remote for any special menu
    functions..... especially with VCRs and VCR/TV combo units...... the
    universal remotes, even if they can be made to perform the special menu
    functions just are not as handy and easy to use and the original remote.
