Even if they become law, will viewers notice much difference? Maybe, maybe not, some experts say.


Nice experts statement there.

we've had this law in the UK for ages. All they do is normalise the levels to the maximum they are allowed - a regular show uses a range of volumes, depending what they are broadcasting (whispers, shouting, whatever) whereas adverts put everything to the same volume (the maximum) to give the illusion of being louder. It's a pain in the arse.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
You should be using UG classic.

Three years ago I bought a Magnavox television with smart sound and it worked great.

About a year ago commercials started to defeat it.

Technically this has been law for decades just not enforced. The FCC has broadcast standards the include but aren't limited to color, aspect ratio, VOLUME, and overall quality. This is just enough people bitching about it until they have to enforce it....
All things are possible...

I always thought commercials appear louder due to the higher...uh...sound density. In TV shows, there's one person speaking at a time, maybe with some laughter from the audience or something. In commercials, there's music, sound effects, and speech from several people.

So even if they do make it quieter, it'll still be annoying.

yea loud commercials have been annoying for some time. I found out last year when I looked all this up that the FCC had no regulations set for overall broadcast volume.

I already upgraded my receiver for my main TV setup which offers the "Dolby Volume" feature so I don't really worry about this little issue anymore.
