TV Commercial and elevated volume rant!

WTF is with these damn commercials that absolutely crank up the volume how the hell is this allowed. You're watching something at level 4 then break to commercial and the fuggers crank the volume to 18 It drives me crazy. Does this bother anyone else?

Some TV's used to have a circuit that would automatically compensate for that. I'm surprised they haven't standardized that feature on all TV's.

It was Magnavox, and the feature was "Smart Sound". I have one and it doesn't work worth a damn.

I usually stay up later than the wife and it's usually the commercials that wake her ass up. I have to keep the remote close by so I can adjust the volume every time.

ya, very annoying. I don't get TNT either, I'll be channel surfing back and forth between the NBA playoffs and something else, and TNT is about 10x louder than every other channel.

I'm with ya on this, its incredibly annoying.

I remember about 10 years ago or so, there was a big Congressional hearing on this & a law was even passed prohibiting it, but i figured it wouldnt last & it didnt.

In some cases, as with Direct TV, they are inserting their own sponsors and the levels don't coincide with the stations. Watch the same channel on cable and on satelite and you'll see different commercials and different levels.

But I agree, TNT and TBS just blasts you with noise.
