Is there any way to lock out ALL SUB and ALL CHAN guides on the 522 or 921?

Mom gets confused and ends up in either guide that I have the PPV/sports/music channels locked out and then I have to get her back to her own 'Mom's' guide.

I have channel locks set in the Locks menu, but if I could just make it so she couldn't switch guides, it would be much better. She gets stuck on the passwords screen and can't get out of it.

I don't mind getting it back to her guide, but at 4AM it gets old. Especially when I have to power off the reciever to get it to respond.

Thanx,

At this time there is no way to lock out certain guide lists. The best solution is getting a second receiver, perhaps one you can find cheap being used.

Thanks.

I have no regrets. I took care of her for a long time and saw her through a lot.

Satellite companies (and cable) need to realize that there are people out there that can't work the complex remotes that come with todays video equipment. They need to make a pared down version for kids and elderly.

Its not the same as 30 years ago when you got up and cranked the knob on the front of the set.
