      Pin Protection Always On But Turned Off

      Ok Daft Question Time

      When I watch any movie in the daytime, unless it is a Disney, I have to input my pin no.

      Now I have gone to Services, removed all the Chanel's and saves it. I have also hit the blue button and turned off pin restrictions, so no Channels are pin protected and all restrictions are off. Yet I still have to put the damn pin no in.

      Any suggestions??

      If you watch a movie before its watershed then you'll get prompted for a PIN.

      Yes, you cannot override the out of watershed PIN protection, it is an OFCOM requirement.

      The best way is to change to any easily entered PIN. 1,1,1,1 or 9,9,9,9 depending on the length of your thumb.
