Ooo goodie. Can I get them to not do whatever it is that means I
have to leap for the volume control whenever the adverts are on.
I describe it as "the adverts are louder", but teccy TV people
repeatedly deny they do anything, and talk about dynamic range and
compression or some such rubbish. All I know is that I can hear
somebody in the kitchen saying "cuppa tea?" during the program, but
can't during the adverts, and have to rectify it by turning the
TV's volume down. That's "loudness" to me.
