Question about a VHS recorder

iaraiara Posts: 1,199Registered Users
I know I am behind the times but what is the best setting to record 6 hours on a VHS tape. I left the recorder on SP and the tape stopped after 2 hours. If I want to record 6 hours, should I have the VCR set up to SLP or LP? Which is the equivalent of EP? I have a RCA recorder.

Thanks

    depends on your recoder but for 6 hours you should tape on either SLP (super-long play) or EP (extended play). They are basically the same but different names based on the manufactures. LP (long play) will get you 4 hours on a T-120. hope that helps.
