    It almost makes me sick to ask the question. How many of you have a TV in your darkroom? Do you find it helps your sanity? or insanity? Does it give you more time in the DR? Does it help you pass the time better? Does it bring guests into the darkroom? Do you watch broadcast tv or videos?

    I've actually been thinking about this lately as we have an extra 13" television and a dvd player that are seeing no use. Put some ruby lith on the tv and I can now watch episodes of mash while printing. there's even a bathroom (converting new darkroom as I type)... now I'll NEVER have to leave

    I don't watch TV in the darkroom, or any other room for that matter.

    I find that if I allow my prints to watch only an hour a day of TV then they still have time to do their fixing and washing.

    My bigger prints I'll allow a little more, once their done but that's usually only for a special occasion like a National Geographic special or something like that.

    Previously I allowed them to watch all they wanted and they started turning out underexposed and would act aggressively when I put them in the toner.

    Still my biggest fear, that even with this hour a day that they will underachieve, become double weight, and will never leave home.

    I hope I'm doing the right thing.

    No TV, just a radio/CD player.

    Doesn't that sort of defeat the purpose of a DARK room?
