I'm perfectly happy with the FCC limiting annoyances in broadcasting, just like they do for all the airwaves.
It's a "feel good" law. The government passes a law that is almost impossible to enforce, and wastes time and money doing so. The only reason it passed was because it "sounded good". And there are no standard penalities if by chance someone is caught.
By the way, it was Congress that forced the FCC to "enforce" it; they also weren't happy about it.
I can't say I have a problem (in general) with congress making a law, and having a government organization enforce it. That's pretty much what congress is supposed to do.
It's not a glitch. It's the streaming providers not volume leveling their output, and most likely boosting the audio on commercials intentionally. Some Roku devices have the ability to attempt to level the volume. My Sharp Roku TV calls it TruVolume, but that might be specific to a Roku TV. You can find any potential options under the * menu under Sound Settings. You might not have that menu available unless something is actually playing.
But be aware that enabling any sound mode will force the device into stereo only out. You lose any multi-channel audio if you use them.
