A Solution to Tomlinson's Omission?

Many of you may have had moments of frustration with digital TV audio.   More specifically, getting blasted out of the room during loud commercials because someone forgot to create a formal reference level.

Not wanting to mention any names, but one AES member on the Advanced Television Standards Committee who should have known better forgot reference levels, plaguing us with the need to keep the remote handy at all times during TV viewing for the next 50 years or so.  Well, at least we got AC-3.

Well, $179 later...  at least we're not screaming for the remote at every commerical break.
