Block/Pause Recording playback on TV ?

We have 3 TV's,(Main Downstairs + 2 Upstairs)
the main DVR w/ the recording(as I understand) is one main DVR and the other 2 play recordings from it.


Is there a way to Pause one of the TV/DVR devices Upstairs when my son is trying to watch recording? I see it has a IP address but I tried using Circle software app to pause it but he can still play/watch the recording.

I looked at the Main DVR and it doesnt show an IP that I can possibly setup on schedule or Pause play/connection.
I thought if we can pause the IP of the upstairs DVR he couldnt watch playlist of movies at late hours.

Thanks

You can use the parental controls to control viewing hours and other things.

Hi Shannon - Where are these parental controls? You saying we can setup/block viewing of playlist? 
I'm use to using the Circle app to PAUSE wifi on the samsung TV(which connects to Amazon prime, netflix etc...) since it has an IP

but couldnt find a way to Pause the receiver so he see's its "OFFLINE"

On the receiver that is in that room Menu>Settings & Help>Parental Controls  AFAIK there is no message saying it is offline just please enter the parental code to continue or something to that effect.

Thanks for the comment! I’m so glad you have a lot of ideas for lead magnets now. 🙂
