Prism® TV: Parental Control PINs
The first time you access Parental Controls you will be prompted to set up a PIN or personal identification number. This four digit PIN must be entered to lock or unlock channels, ratings or On Demand rentals. You do not need a PIN to hide channels.
Creating a Parental Control PIN
To create a Parental Control PIN, press the MENU key to bring up the main menu.
- Use the DOWN ARROW key to navigate to the SETTINGS option and press OK.
- Use the DOWN ARROW to navigate to CONTROL CONTENT, and press OK.
- Press OK again to select PARENTAL LOCKING.
If a PIN has not been created, you will be prompted to enter your PIN. Use the NUMBER KEYS to enter a four digit PIN. You can use the DELETE key to erase mistakes and start over. Enter the same PIN a second time using the NUMBER KEYS to confirm.
The Parental Locking screen should appear. Now you can lock specific channels, On Demand rentals, and more.
When you create a PIN, choose a random number instead of an address, birthday, date or phone number that your child might guess easily.
