Of course any good parent will use the hide function to hide the adult channels from the EPG
, or at least lock them so a PIN has to be used to get in.
I didn't realise you could take them off totally, though of course there is the chance that non-adult channels could have titles or descriptions that you don't want them to see.
Yeah, you can hide them from the EPG, however if you know the actual channel number if you key it in it will still come up - however hiding the channels also locks them by default, so you'd need the PIN anyway.
It's just occurred to me that Virgin must have relaxed their parental protection at some point. I remember having to put in a PIN every time I watched a post 9pm programme on-demand but haven't done that for ages now
Do you have TiVo? There was an update last month which now allows you to turn off the PIN for all content, recordings and on demand. Before this update you couldn't turn it off.
