Setting a Parental Control PIN With a Scientific Atlanta / Cisco DVR

Solution

Before any blocks or locks can be set, a PIN must be created to prevent unauthorized changes. Your Contour receiver may not have a default PIN, and requires you to set one up. You can create your PIN using your Cox remote control.

1

Press the SETTINGS button on the remote.

2

Using the UP or DOWN arrow on the remote, select the Parental Control option.

3

Press the SELECT button or the RIGHT arrow on the remote.

4

Use the UP or DOWN arrow to select Set Parental PIN and press SELECT.

Result: A message asks you to set up or change the Parental Control PIN.

5

Press the B button to begin the set-up process. Use the number keys (0-9) on the remote to set a four-digit PIN.

6

Re-enter the 4-digit PIN to confirm that it was entered correctly.

7

Press the A button when you are finished.


When a Parental Control PIN is in place, the menu item changes from Set Parental PIN to Edit Parental PIN. To retrieve your PIN, the account holder must contact a Cox Customer Care representative.
