NOTE: The Summit Broadband Whole Home DVR powered by TiVo is not available in all markets. This content only applies to accounts in communities where this service is available.
Parental Controls help you make sure your family has access to only those shows you want them to watch. From the Home screen, choose the Menu icon > Settings > Parental Controls.
Turn Parental Controls On/Off
To turn Parental Controls on, use the number buttons on the remote control to enter a four-digit password, then enter the same password again for confirmation. When you turn off Parental Controls, the password is deleted and anyone can view any shows or watch any channels. When Parental Controls are on, a lock icon will appear on the Home screen next to Menu.
When Parental Controls are on, the Apps shortcut on home screen requires a PIN. To allow access to specific apps, add them to the Home menu strip individually by pressing A for options. (Note that pressing A will also require a PIN.)
Hide Adult Content
When this setting is on, adult shows do not appear in search results, and titles/descriptions of adult shows are hidden in the program guide and My Shows. You will need to enter the Parental Controls PIN to watch any adult content.
Set Rating Limits
Movies originally meant for release to theaters have a different rating system from shows made for TV. Use rating limits to set rules for both rating systems. Highlight the rating option, and then use the left/right arrows to change the rating limit.
When a channel is locked, the Parental Controls PIN must be entered to view the channel. You can lock specific channels, or all channels.
Enter a new PIN, then re-enter the new PIN to confirm.
