Time controls on TV

I'm trying to restrict my teenage son's screen times. I've set up IP filtering so all devices are turned off for a few hours every day. But I can't do this with TV as this is not IP traffic: is there any way to set up the Tivo box so the TV can't be used for certain hours of the day?

Re: Time controls on TV

You can set locks on channels - but not by times.

You can prevent rated programmes from being viewed during the daytime.

But setting restriction times for all tv viewing is not really a broadcast providers job.

If you try and block the TiVo from accessing the internet during certain hours then you are likely to start missing guide updates.

 

==================================
V6 TiVo (with MRS & UHD/HDR)
VIVID 500 (500/35mb) in Area 31
SkyQ Silver Bundle (UHD + 2 minis)

Re: Time controls on TV

....might be worth looking at your TV's settings as my old Samsung had settings for locking down screen time.
