Punishing my child and need help


Punishing my child and need help

I am cutting my teenager off of TV when he gets home from school due to his grades.  Is there a way to "lock the box" with parental controls or lock all channels at once?  All I seem to find is locking one channel at a time, which I will do, but that might take a while.

Hi @jagroth 


Adding Parental restrictions on an individual box is mainly used to block out specific channels however you can also lock programs based on "ratings" (TV-Y, TV-14, TV-MA, etc). I believe locking them by Rating can help you accomplish what you're trying to do in less time. I'll attach an image that will explain how to get there. Smiley Happy
