      It sounds like someone has enabled pin protection for all your channels. Using your remote control, press the following:

      <Service> <Left> <Down> type you pin number

      Now examine the options and check, for example, the under "Viewing" Universal(U) has not been set to 'Restrict'.

      You may also disable the Pin restrictions by pressing the Blue button if you prefer.
