The Time Machine is a new piece of technology that allows you to control the amount of time a TV, DVD, or video game console can be used. Children can earn tokens at their parents discretion and each token would be good for 30 minutes of time. If the child has additional tokens to use adding another token will give that child an additional 30 minutes of time. Parents can also preset the time frame allowing children to only use The Time Machine at certain times to avoid inappropriate usage. The device is equipped with a pause button in case the child would need to leave their reward for any amount of time. The Time Machine takes less than 10 minutes to install. The Unit comes with: The Time Machine Console, The Time Machine User Guide, A Power Supply Cable, RCA Composite Cable, Time Machine Tokens (30), TV COAX Cable, Coin Box Keys. Additional coins are available. FAQ's Can this work with HDTV? Yes you can run this through the Coaxial cable out from your digital cable box to the TV and it will work fine.

Plugs between video input and TV. When time runs out, only the video signal is cut off, not the power. (cutting the power in the middle of a game is very bad for a hard drive). Plus, if the time ends, they can still hit the pause button and have it waiting for their next game time.
Works as advertised, tokens each give 30 min of play time.
Comes with 25 tokens -plenty. If you need more tokens, you're not doing much time moderation on video games anyway.
Easy set up, figured it out in about 5 minutes without directions
As stated above, it takes the arguments and discussion out of playing games. If they don't have another token, they're done. We use the tokens as both a form of allowance and payments for extra chores. Also, if they get in trouble, one of the consequences is to give up a token.
Tokens are larger than quarters, so quarters won't work.
Can set up earliest and latest times for games. (If our kids get up early, the game still won't work until 8:00am)
cheap price is cheap construction. You get what you pay for
easily hacked by older kids. I wouldn't try using this with older, unsupervised kids. Not hard to break past the lock or figure out how the trip the coin switch.
Instructions appear to have been translated into english by a 3 year old. The only useful bit of info from the instructions is the pin code
No nonvolatile memory- if it is unplugged, it loses all your settings and time.
This is very effect in moderating game time, especially supervised. We're also using it to help the kids constitute how long 30 minutes is, as that time passes so quickly when playing. -how quickly time is wasted on video games!
