Sergio BeltranDVD Menu Playback changes with different players

All right. I checked this with some seasoned post directors before deciding to ask this, but even they were baffled with my issue.

I authored a DVD with some simple text buttons, simple color method, just varying opacities of black to distinguish between idle and selected. Everything playbacked great in our Macs, but I got a call from the client saying that the menu was doing "funny stuff". I checked the DVD on a PC, with different softwares, and I saw that the menu played differently depending on the software, sometimes radically.

These are the softwares and screenshots:

1 ) Windows Media Center

- issue: low opacity is ok, text "jumps"

2) Windows Media Player

- issue: green outline?

3) VLC Media Player

- issue: selectable text dissappears

4) CyberLink PowerDVD

- issue: really low quality

5) Apple DVD Player

- issue: normal, works well.

No idea what I might be doing wrong and I can't find anything on the forums... anyone gone through this? Ideas?
