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

I found a solution for this problem, maybe it will work for you as well. 

Home - Help & Settings - Parental Controls - Lock channels. From here lock all the channels, click on Use these settings and wait for 1 min. Come back again to Lock channels, Unlock all channels.

You should be good to go.

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

Hi

I've been having the same issues with some channels that were originally viewed after 9pm (currently trying to watch an episode of 'Nazi Megastructures' recorded from Channel 5 last night - does this really comply to watershed viewing?) and I've just had to enter my PIN to watch the program at 2pm even though I have all my settings turned off. I'm in my mid 60's and live alone so I don't need a PIN for anything.

My TIVO box has also downloaded links to many other episodes of this program that I haven't requested (either Catch Up' or 'On Demand programmes) as I've seen them all before (another annoyance!).

I've looked through this forum and tried all of the suggested remedies for the PIN issue and none have worked for me.

A response from Virgin Media would be much appreciated

Hi davec005,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us in our community, I am sorry to hear that you are not happy having to put your pin in for some content.

 

Ofcom require ourselves, Sky,  and any other media supplier to comply with this regulation about certified broadcast material and the watershed for watching such programs, I appreciate the frustration however there isn't a way of stopping this.

 

 

Kind regards

 

Paul.

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

Wrong. I just had to enter pin for an episode of voyager, recorded from the horror channel, as i wanted to watch it before 21:00 hours.. Why?.. THE EPISODE WAS AIRED AT 19:00 HOURS!!! ( by the way, this show was 'first aired' also before the watershed) 

Another thing.. when is the tivo UI being updated? It's clunky, slow, pixelated and looks like it was designed in the 80s...   I mean, considering how much you charge people..

You don't much care for your existing customers either, really. You reel new customers in with 'almost' decent prices, but nothing, Nothing(!) for existing, loyal, long term customers. 

Rant over.

Kind regards, Dreaded Pestilence
