Don't you hate while watching television you have the volume set to your likings then when a commercial comes on the volume is blarring...Do you go through this?

So you try to adjust it and when your show that you were watching you have to reset it again then another commercial comes on and you have to adjust it again....Just venting thanks.

  • Yes and I HATE IT!!! But I heard there is actual legislation to ban the purposeful excessive increase in volume during commercials. But I also do alot of recording on my DVR so I can fast forward through them.....

    BLECH!! It sucks though....

  • Yes I HATE that it is incredibly annoying. It scares the heck out of my sometimes. Apparently it is an advertising thing and they are just now making televisions with volume meters in them that will keep the volume from going up and down like that.
