The Foul Language Filter

TVGuardian Set-top Boxes for TV & Movies

tvg-501-packageThe TVGuardian automatically detects and filters profanity and other offensive phrases while you watch movies or television shows.  TVGuardian is like a smart remote control for your TV that automatically mutes foul language!  TVGuardian helps reinforce the values you’re teaching. The TVGuardian monitors the hidden closed-captioning signal and compares those words to its database of offensive words and phrases.  When an offensive word is detected, it mutes the sound for the duration of the sentence. See the TVGuardian 501 HD and the TVGuardian LT.
