Sure it can be fixed. The Quick Select buttons are just like the buttons on your car radio. On the car radio, you find the station you want, hold the button in a few seconds, and voila! ...it maps that station to that particular button. The same works for the Quick Selects, you just need to go a little farther in the Owner's manual (p. 45), although you would think they would have put the naming of the Quick Selects (p. 29) with the procedure on how to use them. In your case, after you have changed the INPUT MODE to AUTO, just hold down the VCR Quick Select button (on the front panel vice using the remote; or whichever one you want to use) a few seconds longer and it will "rememorize" that new setting.
