Go into Locked Channels and press the yellow button on the Virgin remote

This both locks the channels AND hides them

Shouldn't be.

When you say from the listings, do you mean if you type the number, or the miniguide/EPG?

in the miniguide epg,
when im going up and down the channels its there,
gets embarrassing when the kdis start going up and down the channels and then they are asked for the pin number

I've done it on several STBs and everytime they do completely disappear (unless you know the channel number). It skips from Sports to Kids IIRC

The official instructions from www.virginmedia.com/pin

Hiding Adult channels from the TV guide

You can do this the same way as locking channels. If you’d rather Adult channels weren’t listed on the TV Guide, you can hide them by pressing the yellow button on your remote control when in the 'Set Locked Channels' section of the 'Settings' menu.


Only thing I can suggest is unhide them, reboot the box and try again

It is only the yellow button option that hides them. If you have locked the channels manually, they still show up

I routinely find that the hidden channels appear on the mini epg,despite being hidden via the yellow button.
After numerous reboots,and re-hiding,they are hidden.
However after a period,they appear again on the mini-epg,despite the settings showing that they are hidden.
Any reason,why this is happeningand how to cure it permanently.
I've just tried 3 reboots/hiding,yet they are still appearing on the mini-epg.
Thanks.
Edit:Standard stb

They hide on the V Box, but on both of our V+ boxes they simply require a pin.

The Adult channels(when not locked or hidden),show "inappropriate"stills,regardless of the time of day. e.g 8AM
Furthermore,its not always about protecting children.
Many adults find the content undesirable,believe it or not.
