If used, this option feature can “block” undesirable programming from appearing on the TV. Parental Control offers the user a wide variety of options and settings that restrict or “block” the programming that can appear on the TV. Parental Control allows the user the capability of defining which program rating they consider acceptable to the younger more sensitive viewer. It can be preset and turned either on or off by the user who specifies the secret 4-number code, the password. The number of hours blocked are specified. General audiences and children blocks should be both programmed into the TV’s memory. Viewers’ ratings are specified for both TV and the motion picture industry; both rating systems should be used, for complete coverage. The ratings are based on the ages of children.
To ensure complete coverage for all TV programs (movies and regular TV shows), choose a rating for MPAA, from the selections below, as well as ratings from the TV Parental Guidelines Rating Systems below, using the Age Block option for General Audiences, and for children. In addition to those, you may wish to add additional restrictions from the content block menu, and submenus examples below.
Things to Consider before Setting up Parental Control
Determine which rating you consider acceptable to the viewer. (For example, if you choose TV-PG, more restrictive ratings will be automatically blocked; the viewer will not be able to see TV-PG, TV-14, or TV-MA rated programming.) Do you want to block the auxiliary source entirely? (Blocks the signal sent by the equipment, such as VCR, connected to the TV Audio/Video Input Jacks, or leave unblocked, then choose allowable ratings. Block program “Content” based on individual parameters such as: Strong Dialog, Bad Language, Sex Scenes, Violence Scenes, or Fantasy. Violent Scenes; in Content Blk option. Select a secret password, in the Set Password option, using the numbers keys on the remote control. Do not forget the password, it is the only way you can access the Parental Control menu and change rating selections, or turn Parental Control off. Do you want the Parental Control to be active at all times? If not, you can turn it on or off with the Lock On/Off option.
- You can set different Parental Control viewing restrictions for general audiences and for children, both can be active at the same time.
- Simply specifying one content block such as Sex Scenes, will not automatically restrict the programming that appears from the video sources.
- Even If you choose to leave the AUX Inputs unblocked, the ratings you specify will automatically restrict the programming that appears from the video sources.
- You can not disable Parental Control by disconnecting the TV from power. Block hours will be automatically reset to the original block time setting specified if power is disconnected.
