Although it was posted in another forum, thanks for posting it here. I probably wouldn't have seen it otherwise. Can't wait for that to pass.
It's about time.
This thread has a much better subject line than the other one...
I look forward to the end of DIRECTV commercials shouting at me.
It's about Bleepin' time.
I hate those window shattering, dust from the ceiling, bleedin’ from the ear drums commercials.
I do find it ironic, at least from my experience, that the DirecTV commericals are the worst offenders.
It would be nice if we didn't have to deal with any commercials.
Finally a government regulation that everyone can agree with!
wow, the FCC doing something that makes sense. *weird*. My receiver does a decent job of cutting down the yelling, but it's still not enough.
With all of the talk of "broadcasters" in the quote from the other thread, I wonder if this legislation would apply to DBS carriers.
On the other hand, I can see some audiophile screaming bloody murder about having their dynamic range reduced.
They can mute the audio during the commercials if they want, as long as they don't touch the original audio coming from the broadcast, I think everyone would be happy.
I certainly hope this wouldn't result in the advertisers putting pressure on producers to raise the average sound levels of their programs so the commercials can still be loud.
Then again, I use the FF button generously during commercials.
That's exactly what the advertisers don't want! The whole idea is that when the commercial comes on and is louder, it grabs your attention.
Shows how idiotic marketing folks have become over the years.
Sure it grabs my attention..... I instantly remember the offending business guilty of the obnoxious level of sound and then NEVER buy anything from them. I also tend to send an e mail to their consumer relations department indicating my issue with their method of advertising as well.
ALL the offending parties need to TONE it DOWN! If you don't shout at me I MIGHT listen.
That will do just about as much good as your letters to LABC and BOC and other letters to you other contacts. I am sure they will be all over this just as they were concerning "video levels" on SD content.
About time they did something about it
Maybe so. Although I am in the process of writing return receipt requested snail mails to the CEO CFO of D*. Maybe some heads will roll! They NEED to!!!!!!!! After all I AM a customer of D* and I'm going to do whatever it takes to get resolution.
I have already begun to steer friends and family AWAY from D* until I see what happens with their vid level issues. If they had taken the time to reply with a reasonable answer I might not feel the same way, but until then this squeeky wheel will probably go into overdrive. :eek2::hurah:
