    I am trying to create a DVD with Sony's DVDA 2.0. I have encoded a mini-DV
    avi file to an mpeg-2 mpg version using TMPGEnc. My problem is creating
    scene selections. I have manually created all the chapter points in DVDA,
    and have inserted a Scene Selections sub menu under the Main Menu in the
    Project Overview window. Everything seems to flow correctly using Preview,
    but when I play the DVD in my Apex 1200 DVD player and choose to select a
    scene,
    nothing happens. The highlight goes away from the graphic, but I never go to
    the scene. The movie renders fine. Any ideas?

    Probably, you have inserted a blank "scene selection" function, not
    attached to the video concerned. It's non-intuitive-- select the video
    on the main menu page, and right-click on it. You should see an option
    to create a submenu. It will drop an icon for it on your main menu, and
    you can then see the chapter points by double-clicking on it.

    If that's what you did, then the problem is elsewhere of course.

    The Apex DVD-Player is not a good testing source btw. Most Apex players I
    have seen have problems in one-form-or-another.
