Do you record more TV shows and movies than you can watch?

Since getting my TV and DVR machine at the end of May, I've got 120 or so unwatched recordings.

Usually I don't get round to watching them because when I want to watch TV there is something that is being broadcast live that interests me so all my time is eaten up by that.

I record most stuff so that l can fast forward to avoid the adverts. I can also watch programmes at my leisure rather than at the set time when they are on.
I have just counted the recorded ones and there are about forty items that l need to watch at some point.

Yes, I do that but still end up with a lot of unwatched stuff. A lot of good movies (I think) in there so I won't delete them.

I don't have the facility to record but I would if I could find something worth recording. Unfortunately there are very few things on tv that appeal to me these days and there are the +1 channels and iplayer etc. We no longer watch any of the soaps so that cuts the choice down quite a bit and I really think I have seen 90% of the rest before.

Well, I only have Freeview but find the choice more than adequate; there is always something half-decent to watch.
