Blocking kids devices at night - APP

Hi, is there an easy way to block, say an xbox, after 11:00 at night, tried the MAC filtering but just not working - would be great if virgin had a simple mobile app that could give easy control.

enter kids room, unplug xbox, take it out

first world parenting problem.

 

if you want the geek solution, the xbox comes with excellent and flexible parental controls built in
