Thanks for the update, Chris.  Would it be a simple solution to just
allow a config to not show categories, and to only show the default
Recording Group unless the PIN is entered?  That way, since the setup
is PIN protected, and the All Programs is PIN protected, the "Kids"
Recording Group would be the only thing accessible, wouldn't it?
