Ridiculous. More nanny-state interference in private enterprise.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29301466

AC LOOOOOVES these commercials to play as loud as possible:
 Quoting: -GooGooFlexy-


If I don't want to hear a commercial I choose one of the following options :

- take headphones off
- press the mute button
- fast forward
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29301466


I choose the following option:

Ban companies from jacking the volume of commercials to ear-drum rupture levels.

Much easier.
 Quoting: -GooGooFlexy-




^^^yes yes this^^^ I never ever buy anything advertized on a commercial-thats my personal boycot....I don't watch them and don't listen to them. thats turns into my time to take a piss,get a snack, prepare things for work the next day, and I damn sure ain't gonna run to my doc and say I want that drug that they advertized on TV that will cure (cover up) a health problem.

I only have TV by Anntena so basicly 7 stations. I find it interesting that even those stations turn up the volume depending on the show......so my thoughts on the CALM thing is that the shows(programs) will all also turn up their volume...so the commercials can have their volume also. I still f-in mute them.

TV sucks.

They don't do that. Broadcasters in the US have technical specifications that they must meet. They do not turn up the volume when a commercial comes on.

Commercials may sound louder simply because the advertiser has jam-packed the soundtrack of the commercial with sound. One might say that the amount of sound increases during a commercial. But the volume level does not.

That's ridiculous. There's no extra sounds...It's just one man and his stupid car commercial yelling boot-camp style at you through the speakers.

You don't have to be a genius to understand when one commercial is substantially louder than the rest. If you could come down from your pedestal for a moment and quit being such an ass, I think you'd agree.

And the layering of sound being the issue is out of the question. Most obnoxious commercials are composed of one person simply talking into the camera. How would you like to explain why those commercials are sometimes mindbogglingly louder than the rest?

"If I can make my commercial louder than the rest, more people will pay attention." This continues until every commercial is vying for your attention with the most head-throbbing content possible. There it is. The freedom you desire so badly.

I'll gladly shut up when you tell me why this legislation is a bad thing; When you tell me why having commercial volume match the TV show's volume is a bad thing.

Thank goodness! I thought it was taken care of when they regulated the noise level a few years ago, but the stations just lowered their sound so that the ads could be louder than the regular show.

This is great news! Thanks O.P.

 Quoting: Saddletramp


Slippery slope logical fallacy.

The Slippery Slope is a fallacy in which a person asserts that some event must inevitably follow from another without any argument for the inevitability of the event in question. In most cases, there are a series of steps or gradations between one event and the one in question and no reason is given as to why the intervening steps or gradations will simply be bypassed. This "argument" has the following form:

Event X has occurred (or will or might occur).
Therefore event Y will inevitably happen.

Please learn:-

Compression is often used to make music sound louder without increasing its peak amplitude. By compressing the peak (or loudest) signals, it becomes possible to increase the overall gain (or volume) of a signal without exceeding the dynamic limits of a reproduction device or medium.

Thank you!

I thought of bringing this point up earlier.

Compression is what people are referring to when they bring up loudness.

There is a peak volume level.

Commercials are just squashing EVERYTHING to that level.

Radio stations have this same issue with the noise wars.

When will people learn?

I never understood the psychology of those louder-than-fuck commercials. It has the opposite effect on people where they get pissed off and not want to run out and buy their product.

I would love to see how many consumers decided to buy someone's product due to hearing it blast from their television set.

I don't miss not owning a TV set at all. In fact, that was the best thing I ever did (next to stop smoking that is)

Amazed that this is coming up again as an issue. The last time it was already well-known as a repeating problem. There are crackdowns and then the loud commercials creep back in, over and over as long as there has been television.

Guess I'm amazed because never watch those programs with commercials anymore and find it hard to believe that others would pay good money for cable and sat TV and tolerate that kind of BS from their providers. The carriers could easily put an end to it.

There’s no appetite for anything originating from government or media these days. The always-passive moral majority has gone through the denial, anger, bargaining and depression and has accepted the truth. They are all incredulously amused with the fairytales emanating from the puppeteers’ stagehands…. They are waiting for a trigger event; living life with baited breath, praying for the lights to go out.
