Why am I requested a PIN for cartoons?

Hi,

I have a TV360 box and my son has recorded his favourite cartoons. Unfortunately some of the recorded episodes ("Alvin and the Chipmunks", "Talking Tom and friends") require a PIN which is unusual for those cartoons. I then realised that the episodes requiring a PIN seem to be the ones which have been recorded late at night. Funny enough shows such as "Power rangers" which have been recorded during the day do not require a PIN, which is weird because they are more suitable for older children.

I can't believe that just because cartoons have been recorded in the evening, the parental control kicks in. I would have thought the parental control should be based on the type of show.

Unless I am missing something this appears to be a bug that needs fixing. Otherwise parents may  be tempted to remove parental control to avoid entering the PIN all the time, which defeats the purpose of it.

Thanks.

If you go into settings (home then scroll right across to the cog) and then select parental controls, you can then switch off the watershed recordings pin.

Thanks, that worked.

However if I read the setting in the TV360 correctly "Require a PIN to watch recordings from watershed compliant channels outside of watershed hours", does that imply that if I recorded a programme during watershed hours such as a movie then my child would then be able to watch it?

Re: Why am I requested a PIN for cartoons?

I have checked that with "Watershed recordings PIN" turned Off I am asked to enter a PIN for previous recordings where I'd expect a PIN, and for the cartoons recorded during watershed hours I no longer need a PIN. So it looks like it's working.
