Parental control (setting V-CHIP level)

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. (See page 40 for Secret number setting for parental control.)
• 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.
