DTV has done a fair job equalizing the volume levels between SD, HD normal programming and regular commercials. However - THEIR OWN COMMERCIALS ARE SO FREAKIN LOUD!

Everytime a commercial for DTV vs Dish or a PPV fight comes on it just about blows my speakers out.

C'mon DTV - now the problem is you - turn it down!

Edit: NEVER have an audio drop on THEIR stuff

Funny, it's exactly the opposite on my setup. When a Directv commercial comes on, I can barely hear it.

Me too, weird.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Geeze - I know I'm "closer" to the satellite here on the left coast - but I get just blasted (especially the PPV fight ads) through the TV speakers or the entertainment system - makes no difference.

Figures - no audio drops when you want 'em.:grin:

Since we are the customers we can complain. Even if it is just here.

Yup, some commercials are loud, others have no volume...

the commercials are sometimes still loud on for me as well, but it seems to have gotten MUCH better than it used to be 6 months ago.
