Does this happen to you?

Have you ever noticed when you are watching tv at a comfortable decible that when the comercials come on your tv becomes blarring loud? I know that some tv brands have a feature that controlls this...I need to get one! I think it is outrageous that the volume automatically goes up for comercials...it makes me soooo freakin mad to have to keep adjusting the volume. Is it just my tv or do you have this problem too? We have Direct tv but it happens on local channels too.

  • I dont think its right that they do it. Its awful that you have to turn the volume up so much to hear your program and then you always get blasted out of the room with the commercials. I am not interested in buying their products just for that reason,

  • LOL.. I actually email Proactiv the other night to tell them that their commercials were loud and sucked! And the Bare minerals commercial too. When we had Direct TV, theirs were the worst!

  • Ours is terrible. And a friend of ours jacked with the audio settings on our tv and now you cannot hear dialogue, but sound effects and music are ridiculously loud. All the time. The QVC commercials are terrible on our set.
