I just recently purchased a ReplayTV 5040. I set up parental controls to filter V (violence) shows for my young kids. However, when this kicks in, there is very little time in which to type in the password. After that, the screen flashes crazily and I lose all control of the ReplayTV...can't change channels, select menus, anything. The only way to regain control is to turn the unit off (or unplug) for a good long time (5 mins). After that, sometimes it just comes right back on where it left off (flashing, locked out) and I have to do it again. This is really annoying. Everything else seems to work just fine. Anybody else have this problem?

I haven't experienced the crash. But, the parental controls on the RPTV seem to generally suck. Mine only work intermittently. My TV parental controls work perfectly on the other hand, which is what I will use when my kids get a little older anmd more adventuresome.
