Turning PIN off, need help.

As I'm the only in the house I don't need the PIN setting on, but no matter how many different ways I go through that Parental Control menu, I still have to put the number in. I have set the "PIN on pre-watershed" as off, and all the other stuff. Still doesn't work.
Anyone want to share any tricks?

i don't think you can actually turn it off, may give it a go though (i know the PIN anyway)

I rang sky up as I'm also only person in house and sky say there is no way they can turn the pin off as ofcom/government has said they are to enforce the pin, so only way we could fight this is to complain to ofcom :)
 
Cheers byte1, but it does make you wonder why all those options in their menus then!

You can minimise PIN requests by turning them off BUT you will not be able to turn off all of them, for instance pre watershed rated films (Ref OFCOM regulations) but it will turn them off post watershed.

The options are there with various sub options allowing you to control access for older children/young teenagers etc.
