The TVGuardian Foul Language Filter will work for Satellite and DVR boxes with the yellow composite video out port. The yellow composite video out port is required on all devices/sources to pass the Closed Captioning to the TVGuardian so it knows when to mute the profanity.
TVGuardian 501HD – This model will work on Satellite and DVR boxes that use HDMI connections from the device/source to the TV. The TVGuardian 501HD uses HDMI and the yellow composite video port ONLY.
- Please double check the cables your devices use to hook up to your TV; the TVGuardian 501HD will allow 2 sources with HDMI and yellow composite video ports to be connected and filtered at the same time.
TVGuardian LT – This model will work on Satellite and DVR boxes that use HDMI OR RCA (red, yellow, white) connections from the device to the TV. The TVGuardian LT uses HDMI or RCA cables and still requires the yellow composite video port. When using RCA cables (red, yellow, white) the TVGuardian LT comes with a splitter that will take your existing yellow composite video port and turn it into 2 ports; one for the TV’s video and one for the TVGuardian LT’s Closed Captioning.
- Please double check the cables your devices use to hook up to your TV; the TVGuardian LT will allow 2 sources with HDMI or RCA and yellow composite video ports to be connected and filtered at the same time.
Notice: If your Satellite or DVR box does NOT have the yellow composite video port, check to see if it has a port labeled “A/V Video”. This port will work as a yellow composite video port when using a A/V 10pin to RCA Conversion Cable, which can be purchased here. Please note, the orange or black digital audio port will NOT work for the TVGuardian Profanity Filter.
**Some Satellite Receivers (like Dish Network’s ViP722k & ViP222k and DirecTV HR21-200, HR23-700 and HR24-100) delay the closed-caption text. This causes the TVGuardian to miss the profanity. If you have one of these boxes with the closed captioning bug, you can call your satellite company and have them swap the box with a different model, sometimes free of charge.**
Please take a look at all the information about the TVGuardian and understand it’s features and limitations.
