Re: how can we turn pin off PERMANENTLY? it is an absolute pain

So how come I am asked to put the pin in when I am not watching movies. I am even asked when I just want to watch a cookery programme!

I can't believe there is no option to turn this off. What a pathetic nanny state.

If the Sky Cinema channels didn't have the PIN they'd have to go back to showing the 'made for daytime' films that used to be on during the day on the Sky Movies channels about 10 years ago.

Out of the two options I know which one I prefer!

Just change your pin to 1111, it cant be that arduous to press a button 4 times to watch a movie

Re: how can we turn pin off PERMANENTLY? it is an absolute pain

It is 8:30pm I am watching "Your Dream Home" recorded at 8pm and am being asked for a pin

I am 58 my husband is 66 - Why can't this be turned off - actually is much worse on the new Tivo 6 than the old Tivo

Same problem. Never had it until our old tivo box was changed to a v6 this week- turning off the parental control has made no difference and it happens on multiple channels not just movies.

Re: how can we turn pin off PERMANENTLY? it is an absolute pain

Trying to watch/record a movie this afternoon. It started at 4:30 - ninja turtles but becuase its aird b4 8pm it needed a pin - which means it didnt record 

ridiculous if they air films but you cant watch or record as you have to pyt in a pin- ive spoken to sky & they say its a virgin thing & nothing to do with them.

so why!!!! As it means im paying for tivo but cant record a film as it wont record without a pin - ridiculous!!!!!

You can record anything without a pin, the pin is only needed to play somethings back
