V-Chip
V-CHIP is an electronic fi ltering device built into your
TV. This tool gives parents a great degree of control
over broadcasts accessed by their children. It allows
parents to select programs judged suitable for child
viewing while blocking ones judged not suitable. It
does so automatically once you activate the V-CHIP
feature in your TV. "V-Chip" and "Status" will not be
selectable from the menu if you do not fi rst confi gure
your secret number.
The U.S. has two rating systems for viewing content: TV
Parental Guidelines and movie ratings.
The TV Parental Guidelines work in conjunction with the
V-CHIP to help parents screen out inappropriate television
shows from their children.
Movie ratings are used for original movies rated by the
Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) as watched
on cable TV and not edited for television. The V-CHIP can
also be set to block MPAA-rated movies.
The setting automatically enters "Block" for any ratings
below your selection.
If Status is not set to "On", the confi guration settings will not
work.
