      If these interactive games need the phone line to work and you are outside your 12 month contract then try removing the phone wire from your box. Failing that hide the remote where he will not find it like up somewhere high.

      Both not realyy an option as he does watch the tv, and I want the box connected to the phone as I quite often set sky+ online.

      I presume then that I can't do anything to stop it.

      Is it the online bit or the game playing that is the problem?

      You can require a pin to go online.

      Or tell him that is he keeps breaking the rules that you will turn the TV off altogether!

      Sky+ online doesn't use your phone line. The information to tell your box to record what you tell it to online is sent as an EMM. Its info sent out over every single frequency so no matter what your box is watching, the box gets the info.

      However, if you want to pin protect your interactive then go to Services, Parental Control, Other Restrictions, and then set PIN entry before going online ON, then save the settings.
      There is no p in Thomson.

      Thanks for the reply.

      I did as you said but even with the PIN set to on for interactive services the games on Cartoon Network are still accessable. Any ideas?

      Are the games using the phone line? If not then theres no charges and for that reason it can't be blocked.

      Isn't it possible to pin protect cartoon network channel? Or simply remove the Sky remote.
