    Long overdue. F/X and TNT are the worst perpetrators.

    I heard this morning on the radio it was going to take two years to implement the changes? Even so, this is one act of congress I can get behind.

    It's about time. NBC is brutal with this.

    They're waaaaaaaay to late for that, I can't remember the last show I've watched on TV that wasn't the Daily Show or Colbert Report.

    Until I saw this being discussed on MSNBC(Rachel Maddow, I think) a few months back, I thought this was just a problem with my tv/cablebox. Glad to see somethings being done about it though, 'cause it's really annoying to have to keep fiddling with the volume!:steam:

    That doesn't mean it's not going to affect anything. This forum is full of tech savvy people, but I'll wager that at least 90% of people that watch TV watch it on...TV. Only 66% of Americans even have a broadband connection at all.

    SERIOUSLY it's about time. I always put the commercials on mute, or fast forward if we're watching something DVRed, of course. Still, it's obnoxious.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    I'm betting this will be universally popular, I've only noticed the jump in volume with watching my brothers sky connection, its totally crazy. Most of the time I put the TV on mute when the ads are on.

    Yeah, that would always bug the hell out of me. During the movie you could hardly hear it, so you turn it sky high, then when the commericals come on, you get blown backwards by the blast of sound.
    Anything that you haven't fought for isn't going to be appreciated. It takes blood, sweat, and a large amount of tears before you appreciate what you have.
