    I have a question..I set a password for parental controls to keep my child from watching shows, but you can go into the menu and change the password anytime you want too..it never asks you for your old password in-order to verify you are the adult so you want to change the password..thus your child can go in and change the password and you would never know it.

    This is not a good situation:lol::lol::lol:

    Am I wrong or what, please let me know...

    I dunno, I checked my HR34 and it asks me for my current passcode when I try to change it. I think you have to have it locked first for it to ask you. I'll check my HR21 in a bit...

    Edit: It works the same on my HR22-100.
