    I have parental control lock on HBO, because we have three young children (who know how to channel surf!).

    But I recorded Kung Fu Panda in HD from HBO last week. Now the recorded show sits in Now Playing, but to watch it I have to enter the PIN number. Tivo assigned it a "locked" status because it was recorded from a locked channel.

    Is there a way to remove the Parental Lock from this recording, without removing the lock from HBO?

    Bump. Is there a way to do this? Kung Fu Panda requires a PIN every time my kids want to watch it.

    I haven't used the parental lock feature, but if the movie isn't copy protected you could try moving it to the computer and then copying it back to the TiVo (using the free TiVo Desktop software).

    I know when you do that the TiVo doesn't show what channel the program was recorded from, so maybe that'll make it forget the parrental lock as well.
