Why are some stations somewhat muted while some commercials are broadcast at an increased volume?

Such as CNN news which is often times broadcast at a much lower volume. Other stations besides the news also suffer the same issue, although not so noticeable.

Re: Why are some stations somewhat muted while some commercials are broadcast at an increased volume

This is not under control of Roku or the device. That's the audio level being streamed from the provider. Some Roku devices have the ability to volume level, but be aware that this function disables 5.1 audio and forces everything to stereo.
