    Ok, it's been going on years now and I've had it. Watching PTI I have to crank up the volume but the commercials and espn promos for other shows is at a more normal volume.

    In fact these commercials are now breaking the law when aired on PTI...

    That is an ESPN issue, not a DirecTV issue. They simply retransmit it.

    It has been that way with PTI for quite some time. Not other ESPN shows also.

    I've noticed a bunch of volume level changes which started when the FCC law went into effect. Some of the local channels have increased the level of their local programming to make sure it's louder than the commercials. Some have lowered both the program level AND the commercial level! I think the engineers are playing with their equipment to make sure they don't get cited by the FCC.

    For some reason when I watch PTI, there's always a lip synch issue. Only show I watch with that issue.
