Ok, so I've got a VCR which is a piece of crap, but I long ago lost the remote for it.
Normally, that's not a problem because it's on my second TV, and I've got a universal remote for it to play my rented movies.
But, tonight I need to program the VCR to record a show for me. But the VCR has on-screen programming! How do I get the universal remote to kick in the on-screen programming, if I can't do it from the face of the VCR????
