In my opinion depends on what you watch using HT, daily set top box content or only serious shows / movies. If its later then with time unless your unseen movie list of your liking keeps on growing the time spent may reduce over time. May be subscribing to streaming content and experimenting with new kind of movies may still keep the ringing but that is just me. When you have PJ, definitely you have to conserve its lumination life so as to not exhaust in regular TV watching by making the room dark

Most of us have expensive AV equipment even though we use over the weekend. To me, I watch the movies over the weekend but always like to get the best visual and audio experience.

So even my frequency of watching is limited to only the weekends, I don't mind spending money on buying the best equipment. IMO, it is still OK to invest on AV equipment irrespective of its usage frequency. End of it, you should enjoy what you do!

TV only - about 3-6 hours per day (combined usage across family)
3.1 TV/Movies - about 5-15 hours per week (combined usage across family)
2.0 Music - about 3-4 hours per day (combined usage across family)

Cheers,
Raghu

My HT usage is as below. I watch movies over the weekend and occasionally on weekdays, sports when it comes live and whenever I feel the music I am listening to is something worth beyond the bluetooth speakers

Lemme guess - Amazon prime has just one Atmos title so far and the Shield doesn't support atmos on Netflix - Could be the reason ?

Usually I listened music daily one hour or more either on CD or Streaming. Blu Ray Movie may be once in week. No sports or TV serials on HT set-up. Rarely Netflix or Amazon prime on HT set-up. Major utilisation is on music contents only.

5.2.2 Dolby Vision + Atmos on Apple TV here
- 1-2hrs of gaming or YouTube in the mornings
- 2-3hrs of streaming on Netflix or iTunes or Amazon or Hotstar
- this depends if we're binging any show. Then it can increase.

Of course, we travel a lot and don't really have a concept of weekends and weekdays. So in a month, this is true for perhaps 12-15 days.

All of this is connected using a Logitech Harmony Hub and remote, so the home theater is used for every viewing!
