    Hi Peeps,

    At last we have had the aerial upgrded at home and our old on digital pre-paid STB has kicked into life, however, when we try to store the new channels we get prompted for a Parental Control lock code!!??!

    Doh!

    I am 99.5% sure that we never entered out own code, but we seem to have lost the manual and cannot find one online......does anyone know if there is a default code that we can use to either unlock or reset the parental controls?

    Getting there slowly I guess :D

    Take the card out !!! It's tied to that and not the box. You don't need the card anymore.

    HTH,
    Mike.

    If I remember correctly (and I probably don't), the default number is burried in your customer number (or card id number). Try the last 4 digits.
