I have read at some time, and this might be just folklore, that advertisers began increasing the sound on their ads because many people got up and did other things during the commercial, and the louder volume would thus increase the chance that they at least heard the ad.
Cheers,
John

It is not folk lore John, they peg the volume on the commercials, if you had a analog meter connected you would see the volume go into the red on every commercial.

I'm a night owl and keep the TV on while I'm on the computer for company, and it never fails that the cheesiest commercials will come on at these hours and I swear that they are louder than prime time commercials. I have one of those volume regulators, it's called a remote control. :thumbsup:

Thanks Steve,didn't know such a device was available.I get sick of changing the volume on the TV at least 8 times an hour here.I am a night owl and allways scared I will wake up the Boss,when commercials come on.
We have 20 mins of commercials P/Hour. Yes 'dc3' most of us are aware what a remote control does. :thumbsup:

Yup, surely need more information on getting a 'volume regulator' - hmmm, wonder if they come combined with a normal remote control. (Can only keep track of one gadget at a time - grin!).
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

I usually mute the t.v. as well when the commercials come on because having to turn up and down the volume is quite annoying. It just really sucks when your watching a movie though when theres music. For example last night I was watching The Last Scotsman and there was a scene where they had music so I go and turn it down and then someone whispers and you can't hear them because the music is so loud. :thumbsup: Now that one I cannot figure out. That t.v. volume regulator seems like a great thing to have, but I wonder if theres a way you can control the volume ( that is, without having to turn up and down the volume with the remote control :flowers: ) without going and buying such a device.

My Mom's got a Magnavox that has a "Smart Volume" function on it. It levels out the volume between channels and commercials and shows. Really nifty sad they quit making that function though (her TV is 10 years old).
