    So my 3 year old daughter is starting to become a remote master, if she could read she'd be able to find and start her own shows.

    We have quite a few "adult themed" movies recorded on the bedroom DVR so I figured it was time to implement the parental controls. I went and set the adult moves (this is off the top of my head) to blocked and set a password.

    From the list they now show up as "blocked title" but they can be played without entering the password, what am I doing wrong?

    This is on a HR21 NR

    Thanks

    You need to put a RATINGS block in place. I think you're just blocking the adult channels that are in the 590s.

    You're seeing Blocked Title because that "Adult Channel" function has a long-standing and reported defect that blocks the title of all TV-MA rated material...but if that's the only parental control you have turned on it will not block the material from being recorded, downloaded or viewed.

    Also be aware that adult programming titles may also show up in Searches despite parental controls being in place.
