We were having a few beers over the weekend and we were discussing why commercials are louder and who is sexier Marianne or Ginger etc.
We found the answer to the commercials "loudness" on this forum but
How does VCR know when it is taping a commercial and to skip it?
It can do this with 100% reliability!
My buddy said it is packet sent down before the commercial from the braodcaster but I think this is nonsense.
I think it is because the commercial is taped on a different frequency.
