    I'm getting lots of PIN requests on movie channels now. I've tried all the PIN settings (regular Sky box with TiVo), and it doesn't seem to make any difference what the setting are, you still get asked for a PIN. There's a pre-8pm option, there a PIN on/off option, but they don't seem to make any difference...... :thumbsdown:

    The pin script seems to work OK for Tivo recordings though, so it's not really been an issue.
    Ironically I'm cancelling the movie channels anyway.. tesco dvd rental is cheaper and has a better choice of movies.

    90% of what they show before 6pm seems to be cert.U or PG anyway so wouldn't cause the pin to be an issue. I must admit I've rarely seen it when browsing.

    I'm currently testing a version that catches channel changes and automatically sends the pin if you select a movie channel (rather than just recording one) and that seems to be working.. just need to stress it a bit.

    Sky+ has an option to turn off pin request on playback. Does this include live playback?

    I'm struggling through all the SKY and PIN threads vainly hoping that there is a script-around for this mess

    Before I give up completely, please tell me there IS (and where to look)

    Arrgh

    Ah well

    there is indeed, I can't remember the thread, but there is a post from Gary that includes a patch that allows use of a new code for NORMAL sky boxes that sends 0000 after every channel change.

    Works great for me.
