The loud D* commercials are ALMOST making me call and cancel my subscription... it is that bad and that annoying. Sometimes I am in the kitchen and then the entire house rattles when the commercials are on... I am worried that the increase in sound could damage my speakers....this COULD lead someone to go POSTAL at the nearest D* office.:mad:

At least for me, watching recorded sporting events isn't as fun. And the ending is often spoiled as well.


Then "you're doing it wrong."

I record all sorts of sporting events (hockey, football, baseball, racing) and don't have a problem with the spoiled ending. In fact, I actually enjoy most of those events MORE because I can skip the boring parts (like hockey intermissions, football halftimes, mid-inning breaks in baseball, yellow flags in racing, etc.)

Of course, everyone I regularly communicate with knows this and honors my requests to keep conversations spoiler-free.

Have you "dropped them a line" via their web site letting them know of your displeasure at the sound levels?

May fall on 'deaf ears' (sorry for that one! ;)), but if enough people do that, they may start to 'hear' that message. (Oops did it again).

Might have slightly more impact than a post here will, though that should in no way keep you from posting here! :)

I really like D in spite of a few bugs with my HR21, however there is no excuse for not fixing this very annoying problem. If my dog is sleeping in the same room, the increase in volume will actually wake her up and she is a very sound sleeper.
