As per the subject line, my son's account canaccess all the movie folders that are not intended for him when he is on the iPad Mini.  On the web and TV client, all is good...

He has identical settings to my daughter, but her profile is just fine.  The issue only started after I gave them acess to the adult TV folder (so they could watch The Simpsons....) and changed their access levels to TV-14 from TV-PG/PG.  Her's is fine, she can now see all the TV sereis that are TV-14 and under.  He can see all sorts of folders and I have confirmed he can play R-rated movies.

 

I have:

 

Rebooted the server

Rebooted the iPad

Logged him in and out several times

Checked the access levels and tried re-applying them again.

 

Short of deleting and recreating his account, is there anything else I can do?

I'd save yourself a bit of aggro and just move the simpsons...

 

I'd say create a new account for your son and try that might be the best option. it's pretty quick

it's because the ios app caches a lot of information client-side and it takes time for that cache to expire. i think it has a button to clear it. anyway, it's something we're working on resolving.

how do  you delete the server info on the iPad?

maybe that will fix my problem of the iPad not showing up as a client.

Swipe the server name to the right :-)

It will ask if you wish to delete it.
