    Default Time Limits

    Hi a LONG time ago i ask a question about adding a time limit for devices (eg a bed time limit) what i mean is our 4 kids all of different ages have different bed times i know for a fact our oldest is still watching her tv after her bed time . I know i can stop her stream by just denying her device access this will cut her stream BUT i really want a way to set the time limit on her device in the device manager so it will cut streams and deny access. I know there is one in there BUT that only deny access to higher ratings in that time limit but i want to disable her device intill the right time comes around is this still going to be a addon ? PLEASE PLEASE ill pay you to add it lol i so need this so i don't have to check every night

    thanks

    thanks
    If you look under the Content Rating tab for the device they are using (Media Devices) there is an option for setting the start/stop time for allowing streaming. I think that is what you want.

    if you are talking about the limit streaming between these times button that only limits the rating of there device between thoses times and anything after that will play all ratings. Unless there has been a update that has changed that setting to start/stop streams compleaty

    That is what I was talking about. If you set the content rating to G for their device and then set the time you don't want them to view videos I think this might work, except possibly for unrated content which you'd need to add a content rating.

    Ok, I see your point especially if you are trying to do both where you to limit rating by time of day and overall access by time of day. The way I read the help file originally on content ratings was the rating was equal to or above the rating would be limited but what I see is that they translate that to age and with things like G and other having a none for age then that won't work. I was even thinking that you could create your own defined content rating, which I have done, and set your own age limit say 1 year which would catch everything for a full time of day block but I think the none logic of G and such would equate to 0 and it would still stream those files anyway. I am traveling right now and can''t try this to test. A brute force approach would be to create a new content and then apply it to your files but that would likely create other issues. Your time of day request seems to be the solution.

    yea i only really need the stop/start time limit as all our kids are different ages have there own tvs/media players and have different bed times but it would be good to have both i have had a fue media server software BUT yours if far far better that all i have tried BUT every other software i have had has the time lock in it. It would be really good to be able to automatically cut streams and deny access to the device once outside of the time limits for that device and then it allow again once inside the time limits

    yes i guess you could do something like that BUT this will mean you will have to change the ratings at day time and night time. It really wants to be fully automatic and just a simple deny and access between a time scale for the devices would be very good because no parent wants to be monitoring there kids tv every night to see if they are watching movies and stuff.
