passcode not accepted

My passcode is not being accepted on tivo, I want to change parental conrols

 WHY MUST
 I HAVE A PASSCODE AT ALL............. I am sick to death of having to put in a passcode when I want   to watch something that VM deems "unacceptable" for under 16s....I live on my own am in my 70s and do not appreciate being told what I can and Can't watch without a passcode, get rid of this stupid thing for people who don't need it,......so now I can't watch anything because I can't get into my settings,

Re: passcode not accepted

It isn't VM deciding this, I think it's a ruling by OfCom that all programmes shown before the watershed must be restricted if not suitable for all.

Re: passcode not accepted

It's just so frustrating having to have it at all, as it happens I managed to get in and it's all changed, it now says something about using a pin and it's set to off, but of course I still have to use a pin,  thanks for replying.

Change you pin to something easy like 1111 or 0000.

Re: passcode not accepted

If I do that will it not ask for a pin in future, ultimately that's what I want .

Re: passcode not accepted

On the same settings page which lets you alter the pin (Parental Controls), you should also be able to disable it for the most part.

There are still certain broadcasts for which Ofcom mandate a PIN lock.
