Sorry for not replying to list, its not available.

Possible solution for: http://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/10388

The default starting parental level gets read from the database in

   programs/mythfrontend/videodlg.cpp VideoDialog::Init().

However, VideoDialog::Init() runs after

   programs/mythfrontend/videofilter.cpp VideoFilterSettings::matches_filter(),

so m_parental_level always = 0 (ParentalLevel::plLowest) when mythfrontend
starts. This is consistent with the discussions on the -users list.

Reverting 2 lines from commit 7c8e45f appears to fix the problem.

Tested on v0.25pre-4783-g79f5133. I did not test the case where
there were no videos, I believe the intention of the commit.
