Recently I activated the sign-in screen on my computer because I had guests
staying at my house. Now they have left
and I don't need it, but I can't figure out how to deactivate it and it is
causing problem preventing me from using my
TIVO from playing YouTube videos on my 55 inch TV. Apparently, the TIVO
uses the account on my computer to access
YouTube and because my computer is now password protected my TIVO is shut
out. Watching YouTube videos on a
55 inch TV is much better than watching them on an itty bitty computer
monitor.

To remove your password, go to System Preferences > Users and Groups, select your account click on ‘Change Password’ and set it to a blank password.

I don’t understand how that would affect watching youtube videos on the Tivo, though, unless it was through some sort of remote desktop-type login to your Mac.
