Oh dear. You've got me started too.
Does anyone else agree with my opinion  a sound engineer just doesn't exist any more? Back in the days of British Transport Films pride was taken in cinematography and sound, but now I find myself constantly adjusting sound levels. I've known for years American films need a higher volume but I find I have to turn down music, turn up speech and generally adjust the TV volume every time I change channel. I firmly believe there are no sound engineers any more, especially as many programmes are not actually made by the TV companies but bought in at exorbitant cost.
As far as most comedy shows go, if someone held up a board saying "Cheer" I'd hold one up saying "Why?". I'm sure they're not watching the same show I am :no:
Commercial programmes are now an hour of adverts interrupted by bits of e.g. Midsomer Murders.
'Nuff said :veryangry:

Oooooooooh grumpy today we are 😱

This is the Angry Thread, dear boy. What would be the point of posting summat happy in here? :P

Can't find my coat so I'm going back under the layout.

You can always tell when the adverts come on - THEY ARE ALWAYS LOUDER THAN THE PROGRAMME!, or so it seems.  And what is it these days with the voices they use? Is there some special school the actors go to where they learn to talk to us as if we are all stupid? I blame Cilit Bang.

And then they could post on the Happy thread that they'd posted in the Angry thread and felt much better now and were back on the rails again. :P

I'm absolutely fed up with the music that is played over what seems to be nearly all the dialoge in TV programs

My problem is that, whilst not going deaf as such, I have difficulty hearing some frequencies. Of course, human speech is in those frequencies whilst TV music isn't. We have a, (happy), battle in our house whereby SWMBO wants the TV volume down and I want it up! I used to go to hospital every year for tests and on the last occasion the Doctor says, "We could get you a hearing aid", to which I replied, "Would that not just amplify all frequencies?" and he said, "Yes". I eventually convinced him that that was not a solution  :doh: I have not been since!

Just ensure you don't end up like my late father-in-law: after determining that all hearing aids were useless, in his opinion (though spending thousands to prove it), he found the solution to listening to his favourite TV programs, while helping the folks in the next street to listen to them as well!

Surely, modern, digital hearing aids can be programmed to only amplify particular frequency ranges, exactly as needed - the NHS can be reluctant to pay for decent ones though.

daffy - that is not a problem when I am in the house on my own as my nearest neighbour is about 1 mile away  :thumbsup:

stevewalker - that is a problem as I live in Ireland and if you don't have what is called a 'Medical Card', (which I don't as I earn too much  :'(), or you have private health insurance, (which I don't as I do not earn enough to be able to afford it  :'(), you pay for your own medical bills  :'(.
