    We got the Vchip, why are they still bleeping the "F..." word...!!! I thought now they don't have to Bleep anymore cause if you enable the Vchip it will block the channel. So what's up with that?

    I think the swears stop getting bleeped once you've started three threads about it. Only one more to go!

    That's V for violence. You need to wait for them to mandate Profanity and Blasphemy chips.

    does the V-chip do anything if the only way you get content to the TV is via HDMI and an external box?

    Does a TiVo Premiere have a V-Chip in it?

    TiVo has parental controls which use the V-Chip ratings to filter content. However I do not think they are required to have it.

    I'm not sure if V-Chip ratings are transmitted via HDMI or not. I think they are part of the VBI that goes out across analog connections.

    I don't see how. Kidzone is mostly manual, you could set kidzone to allow nearly anything you want, including violent programs, porn, movie channels, even hallmark.

    Now, if you wanted a thread to center on kidzone features, that would have been worth another topic. But if you search it, you'll find lots of posts on that, which I recollect has been beaten to death.

    TiVo has nothing to do with why they bleep out cuss words on broadcast (or other TV) TV.

    V-Chip even, was not implemented to give broadcsters more liberties, it was another tool to protect children from what objectionable content there already is/was.

    The network considered this, but as a cost-saving measure they decided to have Alex come out in a thong bikini, instead.

    Eeeewwww....! :eek::eek:
