UGH, I hate WNCF and there volume limiting crap. It caused me to stop watching ABC shows last year, I streamed or downloaded them instead, and I'm about give up watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Last time I posted about this, someone connected with WNCF responded and said it was because of new laws but, if that is true then why is WNCF the only local channel affected. Why is it the only ABC affiliate affected as I've mention this in specific show threads before and no one else has the problem. it's just WNCF. I also know it is not my TV provider because last time I posted about it I was with Dish Network, now I'm with DirecTV. I know it's not my equipment because it happens on all my TV.
Here's the issue, there volume limiting, normalizing software/device is over aggressive and effects show volume as well, not just commercial volume. Whenever action scenes start during Agents of Shield, the volume drops dramatically, to the point were we have to turn our volume up. It ruins the show IMO. Funny thing is, the whole reason for the idea of volume limiting is ruin by WNCF's implementation. If an action scene is going on right as the show goes to commercial, the volume raises back to normal when the commercial drops. The big volume changes between shows and commercials are what volume limiting are suppose to prevent but it's made worse by WNCFs method.
It's stupid and I know the folks over there now about it because one of them blamed it on the new law in this tread over a year ago. They need to hire some people that know what they are doing, they are the only station in town with this problem. I can't watch shows with actions scene on WNCF anymore, it's to annoying. Back to streaming or downloading I guess.
