Sage Client - Kids

Is there a way to block a given SageTV client from accessing the setup menu?

I'm going to be building a few front ends for kids, and I'd like to block them from fiddling with the setup options.

EDIT: Nevermind. I just edited the .xml file and took out the setup container. That'll do it.

There is, an arguably, better way to do it. For my kids I use a combination of the following:

BobPhoenix's FCL (Favorite Channel Lists) - This has a feature to let you restrict which channels they can watch on their TVs.

Flachbar's SageMC or Nielm's Dynamic Menus - Neilm's Dynamic Menus, which are built into SageMC, allow you to restrict a menu option with a password. Also, in a future release of SageMC you will be able to lock out imported videos. This will be based on folder structure if I read the tea leaves right.
