This can indeed be frustrating, especially if you have no children in the household, as mentioned in your post.
In order to watch content during the day, that was recorded after the 21:00 watershed, you will usually need to enter your PIN.
You can, however, disable most PIN requests, although, content recorded from some movie channels will always require a PIN based on the age-classification.
You can access the controls for PIN, by using your TiVo® remote and completing the following actions: -
*HOME > HELP AND SETTINGS > PARENTAL CONTROLS (ENTER PIN) > REQUEST A PIN TO WATCH RECORDINGS
If this is currently set to DO NOT REQUEST A PIN, then I'd ask you to change so that the tick is on the request a pin option, then come out of the menu, and follow that path again, then change it back to do not request a pin.
Thanks for getting back to us. I assume you're talking about Sky movies but yes all the options available to customise the pin are in the parental control settings so you may need to turn this off to prevent being asked for a pin when trying to watch movies.
Have I missed something? I have switched parental control off and unlocked all channels but as I type this message ( 10.36 a.m.) I have used the control to access channel 402 and have the screen stating that the show has been classified as 15 and requires a pin to view before 21.00 . I am 69, my wife is 64, my children are 34 and 40, I have no grandchildren. We will never need this safeguard and would love to switch it off. Have we misunderstood that it is not possible? If so please tell us how to do it we'll be eternally grateful.
