Parental Lock in Kodi PVR Client ?

Postby cooledspirit » Sat Mar 28, 2015 11:32 am

There is a possibility to set a parental code for specific channels on DVBLink-server level.
Trying to view such a locked channel in Kodi, you get a screen indicating that the channel is protected by parental lock settings, but no possibility to actually unlock and view the channel.

Now the obvious question: can Kody ask for that parental lock code and unlock the channel ?

I know that Kodi has its own system, but I'd like to have the code implemented on DVBLink server level.

Is that supported / possible ?
If not, is it possible to add this as a requested feature ?

There are no parental control for kodi from dvblink server at the moment. So you can use own Kodi parental control.

That's obvious...

I don't know if you are the right person to ask to add this to some backlog / todo list ?

Kind regards,

It's not planned, at least in short term.

Please add this as a feature request; it's a very logical feature, together with server-based channel groups.

Why doesn't you use the build in parental lock feature in Kodi itself?

I want this to be as close to client-server model of operation as possible. I have 3 clients at the house: I want to be able to setup most things at the server side: channel groups, parental lock, etc.
