Hi, just a quick suggestion. In the parental controls tab of the device definition, could an extra option of 'do not play' be added to the rating based on the time? This way I can stop my kids watching movies throughout the night :) Of course, if I am missing that this is already possible, I do apologise.

Hi,

Thank you for the suggestion.

Do you mean to just completely stop streaming to a certain device during certain hours, regardless of the parental rating? That can certainly be done.

Yep, that's exactly what I mean. It struck me as an easy thing to implement just by adding another flag to check, but my days in dev have also taught me that what seems easy from a design side may be nigh on impossible, depending on caffeine levels ;)

Thanks,

David.

Yes, some things sound easy, but then turn out to be really complex, as you know :) I'll see if I can slip this into the upcoming update (it's feature-frozen at the moment, but this should not be a major thing, hopefully).
