If you are referring to movies on the Sky Cinema channels, then no you cannot turn off parental controls. As a condition of these channels showing adult films outside watershed times the PIN code has to be "locked on" irrespective of the settings of the box.

This condition is enforced by OFCOM & providers must abide by it or risk losing their carriage licence.

That's a pain. I didn't have to put a pin in every time i wanted to view an 12 or 18 rated movie with Sky.

I have the second of those boxes, how do we turn off the parental control pleas? The password is needed for all shows I have recorded after 10pm. Only adults in the house.
