Default Filters

Media Center comes with two default filters for Access Rating

  • Prevent Access to Ratings: R, NC-17, Adult

To apply these rules:

  1. Open Access Control (View > Access Control).
  2. Login if required.
  3. If there is already a filter applied, remove it (click on it and select Remove). Then select the Advanced button until the box turns white and you see ((Custom)).
  4. Make sure Enable access control is selected.
  5. Click on the arrow to the right of the box and select one of the two default filters.
  6. Select OK. The filter is applied.

Edit the tag information in the files you want to filter

If the files do not already contain the tags for the fields you want to filter, you will have to update the tags in the files.

  1. Select the appropriate Media Mode button (Audio, Images, Video) or select the media type in the tree.
  2. Select the files to be rated.
  3. Right-click and select Tag Info.
  4. In the Action Window (bottom left of the screen) browse to the Access Rating field (it is under the Extended column), and enter a rating for all the files. That rating will be applied to all selected files, so you may want to only select the R files, and then repeat for the PG-13 files, etc.
