Am I the only one who has trouble with the loudness on some channels over others?

Since I got some of the oldtime channels its seems they are much quiter compared to regulars. When I turn up the volume on some and go back the normal its blasting. I have a Vizio sound bar that is great.

The most anoying commercials tend to have the barker shouting over your base speaker. Either that or loud druming or background noise over the base speaker.

 

It generally by-passes the way tv audio systems were designed to hold sound to a certain level. If you turn down the volume you end up to low the hear the regular program when it comes back on.

 

The only way to combat it would be to lower the volume on base speakers.
