Just had to use CBC Gem to watch a show that didn't record. The picture quality was good and the interface fairly easy to use but the commercials were ridiculously loud. There had to be about a 10dB difference in sound levels and it was extremely jarring when the commercial breaks started. Every commercial was loud, not just one. Thank goodness for mute buttons. They couldn't get way with this on broadcast TV but I'm guessing the CRTC regulation regarding sound levels on commercials doesn't apply to streaming. It's no wonder Canadians are turning their backs on the CBC if this is the type of BS they try to get away with.

It's not that the commercials are loud, the shows are too low. Set your audio level on another source. Use GEM. The show will be too quiet forcing you to turn up, and then BAM, ads are loud.

No. The CBC ads are too loud. I had my volume level set the same as other sources and it just about sent me through the roof. The CBC's commercial audio was at least 10dB higher according to my AVR's audio scale.
