Re: How do I temprarily unlock all parental controls?

This should help:

 

  • Select Menu on your AT&T U-verse remote control.
  • Select Options, then select Parental locking.
  • Enter or establish your 4-digit Parental locking PIN.
  • Scroll down to select the criteria to use for locking: 
    • Rentals
    • Channels
    • US TV Parental Guidelines
    • Movie Ratings
    • Unrated content
    • Adult programs
  • Select Save, Turn off Locking or Change PIN

Re: How do I temprarily unlock all parental controls?

I understand how to set up parental controls and how to go through the menu
to change/update them. Is there no setting to temporarily unlock all
parental locks so I am able to freely browse channels and watch shows when
my children are not present? Is the only way to do this going into the
parental controls and changing them all every time I watch t.v.?

I'm just in the process of switching from DirecTV to U-Verse...so far I'm woafully disappointed for many reasons, and the lack of a temporary unluck for parental controls is maddening.  Very high on my frustations list.
