Hi there, apologizing in advance for the total noob post, but I can't seem to figure this one out on my own.

I need to make a DVD that starts on a movie that's looping continuously. At any time, one can press a button that will bring you to a second movie. I figured the easiest way to do this would be to make a menu that has a looping movie background. I figured that part out, but now I need to make it so pressing a button on their remote will take a viewer to a timeline. I figured the easiest way to do this would be to add a giant invisible button over the entire image that is selected by default. However, whenever I add a button and preview the movie, the movie no longer plays. Is there a way to fix this, or am I going about it the wrong way? Should I just program the 'enter' button to take the visitor to the timeline?

Thanks everyone!

Don't rely on Encore preview to determine how a DVD player remote will work. This "should" work if you set the default button on the menu to the timeline you want, then just press "play" or "enter" on the remote.

Burn to a rewriteable disk to test.

And how does one do that? (I'm working in CS6.)

If you have only one button, it is already the default. Just link that button to the timeline of the movie you want to play.
