Can I block the SD channels with the Pace RNG200N or anything?
I'm sure this must have been asked before... I tried searching to see if this had already been asked, but maybe I'm not good at that.
When I visit my senior parents, they are still on Cogeco cable TV. They have an older Pace RNG200N. Every time I visit, they are watching SD channels, despite the easy availability of the same channels on HD. (It's a power issue between them).
(I won't bother asking why this SD garbage is coming over the wire in the first place...)
Now, they can argue all they like between each other, but the whole stubbornness and absurdity of this is driving me crazy, and I've picked the HD side, which unfortunately between them is usually the losing side. Rather than stop visiting, I just want to get rid of the SD garbage. Either the SD channels cease being available, or should switch automatically to the HD equivalents when they pick a SD channel (No, asking them to click the Info and Select button is not enough).
I tried using parental controls to block the SD channels, but of course that ALSO blocks the equivalent HD channel! (What genius came up with that idea?)
Is there a way to do this on this receiver, or is there another receiver that can actually block the SD channels properly?
