    Hi, Group,

    Can someone explain to me why, when I've turned aprental controls on, Tivo applies them randomly to porgams, requiring a password to watch even G-rated shows?

    I guess no one replied to your first thread on this subject.

    I quick hint for the future. When a thread doesn't get any replies, just reply to it yourself to bring it back to the first page. Otherwise you'll have to remember to read bioth threads for your answer. :)

    To answer your question, we need mor einformation. Like exactly what you did to activate parental controls? I suspect you incorrectly set the rating value.

    I bought a used Toshiba Tivo that has parental controls on, and I can't do anything to clear and delete, or reconfigure the Tivo. I remember that I read that there is a way to override the parental controls by going into a particular menu and it would let you do things without asking for the parental password. Mine is a Toshiba Tivo with basic lifetime, so from what I have read, doesn't have the passwords in their data base.
