    Hi,

    I just bought a subscription from rapidiptv and so far so good. However I am not able to find anywhere information about managing of channels, therefore I can't hide or block certain channels that I wish my kids not to see (i.e. adult channels).

    Can you please help, is this possible on a MAG254? I was able to do it on Kodi so I assumed this would have that functionality as well.

    Thanks!

    If you have adult channels and wish to block them in the Main portal TV channel list, highlight the channel press the APP button, and press OK. works on mine with the remote with the -house and arrow above the OK button. After you do this they will still show up, but you will have to use the password to open them.

    After you setup the parental password, it is better to mark each channel as 'favorite' using the yellow button leaving out the ones you don't want (like adults) and then sort by favorites, now only the channels selected will be listed even if you shutdown and reboot the Mag254. This way you don't have to see them in your list.

    Thanks mate, it looks very straight forward but can't actually try until I get back home in about 8 hours as I'm at work and very focused hehe. Will confirm once sorted so might help another noob like me.

    Hi harrypotter, I did as you said.
    Pressed app and press ok, I see a blue X appear but nothing.
    I already have a parental code but nothing it's just doesn't seem to save it, I tried as many combinations as possible but the channel still accessible and no code is required.

    Maybe I'm having a moment here, can you please explain the steps in more detail or could it be something in the system not allowing this?

    Sorry for that. Thanks

    Yes you are right, I'm glad at least I have some confirmation, but definitely is making me think about renewing.
