Passcode?

Okay so my parents are getting tired of my brother never doing his homework and wanting to play Xbox instead. They would take the Xbox away but they do not feel that it would be fair to me if they did that. So what I am wonder is if there is anyway to set up a passcode so that you cannot even play Xbox unless you put in the code?

Thanks!

To set an Xbox LIVE pass code:

From any area of the Xbox Dashboard, select your gamer profile.

From the Gamer Profile screen, select Account Management, Xbox LIVE Pass Code.

Enter a four-button code using the X and Y buttons, triggers, bumpers, and directional pad on your Xbox 360 controller.

Confirm your code by entering it again. If you type it differently the second time, repeat from step 3.

To reset your pass code, repeat this procedure at any time. (You will have to enter your original Xbox LIVE pass code before you can create a new one.)

Set a Family Settings Pass Code

A Family Settings pass code keeps anyone who uses your Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system—your kids, for instance—from altering your Family Settings.

Use your Family Settings pass code to override game and movie settings if you (or those with whom you share your pass code) want to play games or watch DVD movies that your console settings would normally block.

To set a pass code for your Xbox 360 console:

Start from the System area of the Xbox Dashboard or—if you're using the Xbox 360 system for the first time—from the Initial Setup Complete screen. Select Family Settings, Console Controls.

Select Set Pass Code.

Select Pass Code, then enter a four-button code using the X and Y buttons, triggers, bumpers, and directional pad on your Xbox 360 controller.

Confirm your code by entering it again. If you type it differently the second time, repeat from step 3.

Choose a pass-code reset question. The default question is "favorite fictional character."

To accept this question, skip to the next step.

To choose a different question (or to choose this question after you've used another), select Pass Code Reset Question and choose from the options given.

Select Pass Code Reset Answer and enter your answer using the on-screen virtual keyboard and either your Xbox 360 controller or a standard USB computer keyboard plugged into a controller port on your console.

Tip

Pick a question for which your answer will be obvious and unlikely to change in the forseeable future. Also, be sure to type your answer in a way that will be easy to retype later if you forget your pass code.

Select Done from the Set Pass Code screen, then select Done once more from the Console Controls screen. When prompted, select Yes, save changes to put your new settings into effect.

To reset your pass code, repeat this procedure at any time.

Reset a Forgotten Pass Code

To reset your Family Settings pass code after you've forgotten it:

From the System area of the Xbox Dashboard, select Family Settings, Console Controls.

Enter an incorrect pass code.

You will be told that your pass code is incorrect. Select Reset pass code.

You will then be shown your pass-code question and asked to answer it.

Type your answer using the on-screen virtual keyboard and either your Xbox 360 controller or a standard USB computer keyboard plugged into a controller port on your console. Your answer is case-sensitive and must be typed exactly as you entered it originally. This will clear your original pass code and allow you to enter another.

Repeat the Set a Family Settings Pass Code procedure, beginning with step 2.

If you've forgotten the answer to your pass-code reset question as well as your pass code, please call Xbox Customer Support at 1-800-4-MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269).

If you've forgotten your Xbox LIVE pass code, please call Xbox Customer Support at 1-800-4-MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269).
