I have never set up a parental pin on my TiVo box but I'm being asked for one to watch an episode of Coronation Street before the 9pm watershed that I recorded. I don't have any children so don't require one. When I go to Help & Settings, then Parental Controls it's still asking me to enter a pin number, so I can't even get in to turn it off which is really frustrating. Any ideas?
not for something like sky movies no. it is the law (ofcom and successive government collaboration) that pins are in place to protect under 15's/18's etc regardless of whether there are children living in the house.
i don't see it ever changing. with social media facing a crackdown on what they show, i can see netflix etc also having a mandatory pin in place pre watershed sometime soon.
