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.
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?
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.
