Thank you Deecee... no luck. I tell you! I called RCA, the maker of my VCR w/universal control and they sent me to their parent company, Thompson. The woman that "helped" me was terrible. She insisted that RCA Universal remotes only operated RCA products! Can you believe that? LOL! I finally got frustrated with her and just hung up. I really need a copy of that Owner's manual, but I fear that I can't order it anymore because my VCR is old; I bought it in 1997-1998. Thank you guys for your help. I was not familiar with this site before, but I will now be a regular visitor because everyone seems to be very friendly and helpful and experts! I am not very home improvement savy, now I know where to turn to. Thanx!
