Rating and Password Setup

The Rating and Password settings work together to control the types of DVDs that your family watches. Most DVD-Video discs have a rating (from 1 to 8) assigned to them where lower numbers are designated for all audiences and higher numbers are designated for more adult audiences.

When a DVD-Video disc is loaded, its rating is compared to the setting in the DVD player. If the rating of the disc is higher than the setting in the player, a Password screen is displayed. In order to watch the disc, the rear passenger must enter the correct password using the password entry method described below.

To play all discs without requiring a password, set the DVD player’s rating to Level 8. Setting the rating to Level 1 always requires the password to play any DVD disc.

Not all DVD discs encode a Rating, so it is still possible that discs designed for adult audiences can still play without requiring a password.

The default rating is Level 8 (play all discs without a password) and the default password is 0000.
