You can set up parental controls to lock certain channels or all programming with certain ratings. A locked channel can be unlocked for a certain amount of time or for a specific program with a PIN you set. To set up the parental locks, press the “Menu” button on the remote. Select “Settings” followed by “Parental controls.” Select “Parental locking” and the system will prompt you to put in a four-digit PIN using your remote. Chose four numbers that will be easy to remember but not easy to guess. After you have set up the PIN, you will be able to select certain channels or certain television and movie ratings to lock. After you have saved these locks, every time you switch to that channel or a program with those ratings, it will show a blue screen that says, “Press OK to unlock this program.” You can use the PIN to unlock the current program or to unlock all TV for the next four hours. The parental controls also lock recorded programs which can be unlocked in the same way as live TV. If you forget your four-digit PIN, call VTel at (802) 885-9000 or toll free at (800) 279-4049 to have it reset.
