I am having an impossible time figuring out how to allow my children to watch movies I have on my media server (Windows XP with TVersity) without having to enter a passcode. It seems once Parental Controls are turned on, then there is no way to access the media server content without entering the access code.

Anybody know of a workaround or is DISH could add this as an ON/OFF selectable feature in the Parental Controls menu?

Well since they don't know what you have on the server it kind of makes sense

But since I do know what is on the server, I should at least be given the option to allow access to it without having to enter a code. Seems like an oversight to me. Is there an 'enhancement request' thread somewhere I could post to? I know DirecTV had one.
