Here is my experience...

Currently I own a GOVIDEO VHS deck which consists of two decks in order to dub programs.  I have had the product for many years and have few porblems with it.  One night as I attempted to dub a video, I noticed that the batteries in the remote control were dead.  After looking around the apartment for awhile, I realized I didn't have a spare to set to use in the remote.  I went back to the machine and figured I would have to dub the video by pushing the record button on the machine.  To my surprise, the controls did have a menu button under the panel in order to set my controls. I had to dub the video in the dreaded SLP mode due to this bizzarre setup by GOVIDEO.  I found it frustrating and illogical.
Possible Reasons Why:
1) GOVIDEO wants a person to by another remote control if one breaks.
2) GOVIDEO owns stock in battery companies. 
3) The developers of the machine figured it was not neccessary to complete this.
