Optik TV Netflix App     -     parental Control bug/flaw

 

I have contacted netflix and they have brushed this bug off as a optik tv set top box problem and that there parental controls / maturity setting works fine.

I beg to differ, If you set the maturity setting to something (eg. PG-13) or set to Kids experience in your profile manager. It will set that profile to the correct setting but the bug is in the profile edit feature.

 

So when you start up netflix on your optik TV box you are presented with profile selection. below each profile is the edit pencil. select the pencil below the profile you just set. You will have 3 selections Name, Picture, and Start Experience. Select start experice and choose Kids then select done. Now go back into your profile edit pencil like before and select start experice and choose Netflix then select done.

 

Now check your profile you just unlocked the parental controls without logging into the web interface.       BUG.........

 

Please test yourself and fix ASAP.

 

I do have an older coax optik tv box if that may help.

The older Optik TV box I have is a CIS330.

 

I think this only works on the older boxes. The newer pvr box doesn't have the start experience selection in the profile edit screen.

Can anyone confirm there box type and if you are able to see the start experience selection in the profile edit screen.

 

Thanks
