Parental Control makes it easy to restrict programs you don’t feel are kids’ stuff. You can set a lock to restrict viewing by rating, such as R or PG-13, or by program title. You can also completely lock certain channels.
To restrict by rating or program title:
Step 1: Go to the Main Menu and highlight the Parental Controls bar and press OK.
Step 2: Enter your 4-digit Parental Control code. If you have not set your code, you will be prompted to do so.
Step 3: Use the up or down arrow to highlight either Channel or Rating and press the OK button.
Step 4: Press the left or right arrow until the desired rating or channel appears, then press the Lock button.
To restrict specific programs or movie titles:
Step 1: To lock a specific program or movie title, use the up or down arrow to locate and highlight a program and then press the Lock button. You can remove a lock by pressing the Lock button again. To view a locked program, enter your 4‑digit Parental Control code.
You can also temporarily remove all locks by going to the Main Menu, then select Parental Controls, then Master Locks. Select Yes, and you now have two choices:
• Bypass Locks allows you to maneuver around all the programs as though there were no Parental Locks selected. Then once the digital receiver is turned off, the locks go back on.
• Remove All Locks completely removes all the locks that were selected.
