With Respect

I have a Magnavox CMWR20V6 DVD recorder whose own remote control is broken.

I have tried to program a Phillips SRP 2006/27 universal remote to control the DVDR. It works in some ways but I cannot access the Menu or (usually) Setup screens and functions for the DVDR/VCR itself, as opposed to the Menu screens for the disk that is in it.

This means:

A. I was unable to correct the DVDR's clock until one time I unexpectedly got a limited Setup screen on starting the DVDR, which went away once I had reset the time.

B. I cannot reset the Mode from SP to SLP, so get two hours of recording on each DVD instead of eight hours.

C. I cannot set the DVDR to record when I am not there to start it

Can anyone suggest a sequence of buttons or other procedure that would allow me to access the DVDR's menu and timer programming with the Phillips universal remote?

Yours Sincerely,

Alan E. Dunne
