If your listening to music/watching TV, or something and someone comes into your room, do you mute it or pause it?

Honestly I don't see the point of mute. Unless your one of those people who mutes the commercials o.o'

I paaaaaaause. I don't want to miss anything. XD People always look at me funny because of my music, anyway. :[ I just kinda smirk. >:3

Of course, this only applies to music. I can't pause my TV. :x No DVR.

If I'm Watching TV and someone enters my room, I will pause if possible, otherwise I'll just mute the TV.
Music, I'll most likely pause, unless is someone annoying, in which point I'll pump up the volume.

Now, If something enters my room, I'm pretty sure I'll freak out and try to kill it.

I always mute it because I'm to lazy to pause it.
I also don't have a DVR in my room.
Even when I do have a DVR or I'm watching a movie, I never pause it because...well, I'm not quite sure myself. :|
Pausing is for gaming.

You just make these polls at the spur of the moment, don't you?

If its a movie that I've seen already, then I'd mute it and just watch the screen as someone talks. However, you can't do that with music, so I pause it.

Since I have a DVR. I Pause it. I NEVER want to miss any of the action. Besides when it comes to music, if you mute it, you probably miss the good parts of the song anyway.

If I'm listening to music, I pause it, I don't want to lose a single note. If it's TV, I usually stop it unless I'm not really paying too much attention. And I ALWAYS mute the commercials, by the way.

I do neither


When I'm in a nice mood I usually pause it and for T.V I lower it

Pause music, no point in muting. You'll miss something.

But you can't pause TV, so I just turn the volume down.

I rarely watch movies on my TV, so I can't pause. And I don't have TiVo or whatever that allows you to pause in the middle of shows, so... always mute. Or I try to make the person talk over the volume of the TV anyways.

I tend to pause things if I can. I rarely watch TV, so it'll either be video games or music that I'll have to stop. It's easy to pause both of them, so I always pause video games unless it's at a place where I can just let it run without it doing anything.

For music, sometimes I'll turn it down instead. It depends on which one's easier to do at the time.

Pause :x

I mute when I'm listening to music and watching something and feel like watching the people or characters lip sync the song XDD

I put in pause when I am listening to music or watching tv. I have a DVR, and it comes in handy when I have a phone call or something. Same way as if I am listening to music.

I pause, because I am addicted to last.fm and do not want to accidentally scrobble tracks I don't like.

I pause it.

Don't want to have to rewind if I don't have to.

I always have my headphones on as I'm embarrassed for my family to hear what I'm listening to, but I pause in case they want to say something so I don't miss a word they say. But I don't really listen to music, I mainly listen to MIDIs (generally MIDIs I make to admire them or test how they sound or remixes I've done). I am such a geek. >_<

When listening to music, I always wear headphones so even if someone is nearby, I won't change the volume or pause. If someone's talking to me, I will pause though so I don't miss out on the song.

I have a button on my laptop that mutes the sound in an instant, which is much faster than pausing it. :| So I'll usually just do that, unless I know it'll take a longer amount of time in which case I'll probably mute it then pause it. If I'm watching TV, I'll just leave it on. XD As for gaming, well, depends on the game. Some games I'll pause and listen to whoever it is intently, but other games I'll just play and talk at the same time with.

Unless I'm watching On Demand channels, the TV in my room can't pause..
so I either leave it going, or just mute it for a few. No if it's on Demand, and someone comes in,
I pause. I love Pause.. >>; Sadly, only one TV in our house has the ability to pause live TV.

... & It isn't mine. T-T

Pausing is for gaming.

for music: pause
for tv: no dvr= no pausey
for games: pause
for all of them: no mutey
(p.s.: Saber, you do have a point. A point about the dvr, if i'm waiching tv, i just leave the volume so that i can listen to it!)

I normally pause if it's music. If it's TV, I tend to mute it, or just turn it off. (I really don't watch much TV)

Well I don't tend to do eather, but I'm thinking like my parents.

Someone else, I'd eather turn off the TV or pause the Music. I want them to know they've got my attention.

If I can pause it I pause. I dont like missing anything. I dont usually mute unless I need to. I'd rather just turn the volume way down.

I will pause it. I don't like missing my shows and it lets me skip the boring advertisements.
