Default Getting Up To Speed

I trid to find a remote with the elusive EP button but no joy on any

Would of been handy if you gave the model, but I don't think RCA made any
of these units, probably a rebadged Funai or worse.

Just taking a guess, a lot of those combo sets used a menu to set the
recording speed, not a button. So if it has onscreen menus and arrow keys on
the remote, try those arrows (left/right mostly) to see if it switches to
another one for the vcr settings. At some point in time they decided record
speed was a set-once feature.

Toshiba made some with a dedicated sp/ep button on the remote, so it's
entirely possible but without a model number, only guesses.
