After you set the lock, you will need the secret code in order to: • view a locked channel, • view the locked TV, or • cancel the lock. If you forget the code, you can view the locked TV without entering the code. To do this, simply press the buttons on your remote labeled “RCL” and “9” at the same time whenever your secret code is requested. ⁄Important: Unlocking with this procedure is only temporary.
