Colin Thomasmenu button goes to previous track
by on Nov 15, 2007 at 2:02:27 am

when testing my project with simulator if I'm ever at a menu and press the 'menu' button on the remote I am taken to whatever track had been played most recently. preferably I want the 'menu' button on the remote to take user back to the Main menu no matter where you are, whether in the middle of viewing a track or at a sub-menu. Is this possible? Is this just something that happens in Simulator as I have yet to burn and see if the problem persists when actually played in a DVD player?
thanks for the help
-Colin

That's just part of the spec. You have no control over it. Standard practice is to disable all user ops except "button select" and "stop". It's not too much to ask the user to navigate to the Main Menu button and fire it if that's where they want to go.

I'm not sure I would call this a "standard" practice to disable this. It is a option for sure but most major release titles you buy do not disable the menu button jumping back to the video. One place it is helpful is if you are watching a movie and want to see the audio or subtitle options on the menu you can go there and look around change settings hit menu again and you are back where you left off. This I believe was the thinking behind the spec.

thanks for the attention to my post. I have reviewed some of my DVDs of major release titles and see now that nearly all perform this way: "menu button" from a menu scene returns to most recent viewed track/video. That makes me feel better. I just didn't want something on my final DVD product which caused viewers/customers to believe the DVD faulty/inferior.
thanks,
Colin
