Parental Controls PIN Not Sticking

Parental Controls PIN Not Sticking

I have been unable to watch any TV shows online with rating other than "NR" or general. Anything rated higher, even TV7 or whatever the lowest kids rating is, leads to constant buffering.


At first I thought it was my OS (Linux) and then my browsers - firefox, chrome, chromium. Whatever the reason, I can't seem to solve it. I've seen many posts regarding the TV MA and constant buffering issue.


Yesterday I noticed that whenever I attempt to change the Parental Controls it always asks me to select a pin - even though I have done so in the past. The PIN never seems to stick when using Linux. I get the email notification that the PC settings have changed, yet every time to go back it asks me to select a PIN.


Could this be the problem, and if so, what must I do to solve it? I've tried deleting the cache and have enabled cookies. Nothing so far has worked and I'm essentially locked out of watching almost all TV content online.
