Advertising overload

"I noted the advertsing programs put in bright several frames of overshooting white signals in purpose of attracting attention which I do not want also it gets on my nerves sometimes. FLASH *flash* Ughhh! Is there a way to cutoff the "overload" or tone down that?"

(From: Jeroen H. Stessen (Jeroen.Stessen@philips.com).)

Technically, the TV takes care of its own overload protection. Or at least it *should*, on some TV's you will certainly observe the line transformer going into saturation for a while. Other than that there is not much you can do, each TV should represent its input signals with as much fidelity as possible. Change channels?
