How do I set up parental controls on my TV? How do I change my parental control pin number?

When you are in TV Guide, press the "Options button and a panel will appear on the right hand side where you set up parental controls. Parental controls allow you to select which shows you wish to allow your children to view. We use the MPAA ratings; that is G (General), PG, PG-13, R (Restricted) and NC-17 (No children 17 or under).
You can choose both the maximum rating and the length of time for the limitation to remain in place. So for example, if you chose G, only G-rated shows will be shown; if you chose PG-13, only G and PG 13 rated shows will be shown.

Once you have made your selections, you can engage them by entering your parental control pin number in the pop up screen. Your parent control pin number is the initial password that we emailed to you when you first signed up to VMedia. Once your parental controls are set up, then any show with a higher rating that what you have set up e.g. R or NC-17 in our example above, would require you to enter your parental control pin number to access.

You can also change this initial pin number to a shorter, more convenient one or your regular password in your ‘My Account’, (Under TV and then Settings). After you have changed the pin number in 'My Account’, press refresh on your remote when the VBOX is in TV Guide or any other screen, and your VBox will adjust to the new pin number.

Information on Parental Controls is also available in our VBox manual in the TV Guide section
