    Hey guys.

    Don't know if this has been asked before but here goes.

    My kids each have access to MP on their bedroom PC's all connecting to a main MP server in the loungeroom.

    My questions is, is there a way to restrict what recorded TV they can access ?

    My wife and i record a lot of show that are not appropriate for kids and would like a way to restrict them
    so they can only view recorded shows that are age appropriate.

    Any suggestions ?

    Thank you for your input regeszter.

    Having looked at your custom build, i can't figure out if it will do what i need, and not really willing to play around with my live system at home just to find out.
    I am using MS SQL and it's not a straight forward test.

    Based on my question in the 1st post, do you think it will be suitable ?

    To clarify:

    My lougeroom HTPC records all TV shows.

    What i am trying to achieve :

    - Kid's bedroom HTPC's only show recordings suitable for kids.
    - Loungeroom HTPC to show all recordings
    and
    - Mum and Dad's bedroom HTPC to show all recordings.

    If it doesn't make sense let know and will try to explain again.

    Thanks again :)

    Sorry, but I never tested my build with MSSQL.

    - Kid's bedroom HTPC's only show recordings suitable for kids.
    You have to create a TV channel group and place all adult channel to it. It will result all recordings and the channels from this group will be hidden in children room if you set hide all pin protected channels.

    - Loungeroom HTPC to show all recordings
    and
    - Mum and Dad's bedroom HTPC to show all recordings.
    You not need to hide this group but you have to enter a PIN code to access this TV group and recordings from channels witches belong to this group.

    Thanks for the details regeszter .

    I don't think this will work for me.

    I'm not interested in blocking channels and/or groups. I would like to be able to block individual shows regardless of which channel it was recorded on, based on their content rating eg: C, G, PG, MA, R18 etc etc...

    Or perhaps a way to tag a show in advance when setting up a recording schedule as whether to be accessible from kids clients or not..
