Hi there,

Yes you can, you have three diferent lock options:

'channel' this option allows you to lock or unlock particular channels.
'program' this option allows you to lockout a particular TV show.
'game' this option allows you to lock channel 3 and channel 4 plus the external inputs.

To activate the game lock on the tv you need to press the 'menu' key then press the down arrow till you get to 'lock' and press ok.You will then be asked to input a password, if it is the first time you have used the password then you will need to input a code of your choice twice to register it (write the password down and put it somewhere safe) Then you will be in the 'lock' menu so using the down arrow go to 'menu' and select it then se it to 'custom' you will then be able to select the 'game' option by arrowing down to 'game' and select it so that it shows 'on'. Your tv should now have locked out the external inputs etc. To unlock it you go through this procedure again just this time you select so it shows 'off' You can also select 'custom' in 'game' mode which will allow you to select which external inputs to lock which is useful if you have DVD players or other devices connected to your TV and is something for you to consider. Full details of above procedure are in the user manual page 32 - 33 under the heading Lock.

I hope this answers your question.

Regards,
James

Ps. Tell the kids it's my fault they can't play their games!!!!

    Just a quick update to this, sorry I should have mentioned that you need to do this using the remote control.

Not switching systems


Make sure your keyboard is plugged into the keyboard port of the KVM. The IOGear KVMs use a keyboard and mouse emulation. Due to this the keyboard port is the only port will recognize the Scroll Lock command.

Kids playing with system put lock code on it and now we cant get off dont know what it is..parental control


Try 0000 and then 9999. These are the default passwords. If those don't work:

Turn on the PSP.
In the main menu, under "Settings" (Toolbox Icon), go to System Settings. Press X.
Go to "Restore Default Settings". Press X

The password should reset to 0000 or 9999.

Tha parental lock code


Step 1
Turn on your PS2 and choose the menu screen where you would normally enter the password. Instead of entering a password, go to the DVD setup menu. Go to "custom setup" and choose "parental controls".
Step 2
When you are asked for the code or password, press the select button on your controller and enter the number "7444". Now set the parental lock to "off".
Step 3
Press "reset" on the front of the game console to save your settings. When the system reboots, you should be able to view your previously censored games or DVDs. You will also have the opportunity to choose your own password, allowing you to turn the parental lock on and off, either manually or automatically by game or movie ratings.
I often recommend that the parents of older children should regularly reset the password in order to prevent "hacking". Also, try to choose a password that could not be guessed easily. Often, a combination of both letters and numbers works best, as the laws of statistics dictate that more choices equal more failed attempts at cracking the code. Unless your child is exceptionally persistent or lucky, boredom will win out before they guess the correct code.
