[iO] Sub Accounts Can Access Master Account Holder's DVR

This is just a heads up.

By logging into Optimum.net...

I just learned by accident that sub accounts (secondary Optimum ID's) have full access to the "Master" (main) account holders DVR.

This feature is turned on by DEFAULT.

This is true for the individual physical hard drive Scientific Atlanta boxes or DVR+.

So therefor they (other family members or any other sub account associated with the main account holders account) can access any DVR, view what stored on it, see what's scheduled to record, delete what's already saved, schedule a recording or delete a scheduled recording.
Anything the master account holder can do...so can sub accounts do to the DVR.

The master account holder can turn this feature off by going int the buried setting.

Log into Optimum.net>Click on TV DVR>DVR online preferences>Un-check Enable online access to each sub-account>Save.

Maybe this is why weird things happen to your DVR recordings.
