Keep adult stuff for just the adults.

Sometimes spice is best kept in the cabinet, so we've added a "Hide Adult
Content" menu. Now your spicy channels, titles, descriptions, and artwork
can be safely tucked away on your TiVo. The Hide Adult Content setting is
turned on by default if the Parental Controls feature is on. Turn this feature
on or off by going to:

TiVo Central > Settings & Messages > Parental Controls > Hide Adult Content.
