Explanation of Rating Limits
The Rating Limits feature lets you determine what types of discs can be played in the player, and what types of discs will require a password to override the rating limit that you’ve set. In the U.S., the ratings feature is based on the ratings set up by the MPAA (Motion Pictures Association of America) such as R, PG, G, etc.
The system ranks the ratings from 1 to 8 in order to accommodate ratings systems used in other countries (1 is considered material that is least offensive and 8 is considered the most offensive).
Note: In order for the Ratings to be enforced, the DVD/VCR must be locked and the disc you’re playing must contain a movie (or a title) that is rated.
To Set Ratings for Rated Titles:
The Rating Limits menu enables you to block discs that contain movies with a rating assigned to them (R, PG-13, PG, G, etc.) from being played unless you enter the password you created in the Password menu.
From the main menu, highlight Parental Control and press OK (enter your password if asked).
Highlight Ratings Limits and press OK (the 8-level rating list appears.
Use the up and down arrow buttons to move the bar to the rating level you find acceptable. Notes: Ratings that don’t require a password (free access) appear under the bar. Ratings that require a password appear above the bar.
To return to the main menu, press the left arrow button until the main menu appears.
