Will ask for a pin code to access parental locked channels. Channels can be marked as locked in the channels editor on the general tab. Parental locked channels can not be played or recorded without entering a pin code, and the EPG information is hidden for those channels.

Ask for the pin code again when trying to access a parental locked channel and the code hasn't been asked for this duration. Defaults to 300 seconds.
