Do you spend more time on the HTF or with your HT's?

    While I am at work, I can't wait to get home to retire to my HT room and watch one of my favorite movies, but..........Most of the time I don't make it to the HT room, I end up spending all evening here on the HTF!
    I really enjoy it here. I spend a lot more time here than with my HT. But somehow before the evening ends I find a way to squeeze a movie in, sometimes late and I end up falling asleep during the movie.
    How about you?

    I probably spend more time on the HTF. There have been many times where I plan on watching a DVD, but I log on here and end up not watching the movie.

    Oh I certainly don't spend that much time on the HTF. [​IMG]
    I even it out....work, screenings, HTF, DVD watching. Somehow I have time for all of this.

    I've always wondered how people manage to 1 have a life, 2 work, 3 watch, work on home theater, 4 spend time on htf, 5 play games on x box, playstation 2 and the likes.
    I guess they have better time management skills than me.

    A few weeks ago I would have said yes, but now I'm probably spending more time at the gym/pool than either.

    I realized that this was happenning: I was spending more time on HTF TALKING about DVD's than actually watching them. I was buying more and more of them and not getting to watch them!
    So I've conciously slowed down both my buying and - believe it or not - my HTFing (can you even tell? [​IMG] ). My unwatched list is starting to shrink a bit as a result.

    I spend more time with my HT. This would include time listening to music (critical listening, not background music).

    I spend more time online than I do with my HT, and I never go online without checking this place out.

    I spend most of my time trying to tweak my home theater. I use the forum only 1-2 hours per day. I do love it though. Don't get me wrong... [​IMG]

    In any given week, the HT wins out (but not by much) only because I tend to post while at work and not while at home.

    In the weekend the HT wins (most of them, that is), but overall it's the forum.

    I probably spend more time here since I only watch about 2 DVDs a week.
