However, when digging into the idea, a better one came to me, and though it is beyond my capacity to implement across the multiple platforms, I wanted to share the idea with the community in the hopes that we could make a difference. The idea is simple: Automate the complaint process in popular open source media center applications, such as MythTV, XBMC, or Plex plugins, with automatic flagging of commercials that are loud, along with the relevant metadata. A review process for the user would allow them to fill in the advertiser as the one non-automatable aspect, though this could theoretically be semi-automated by fingerprinting the commercials as well.
