Menu not showing on start of dvd

I followed this tutorial on how to insert a menu in dvd-a,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfuS9diB45c

but when i play the dvd, the menu doesn't show at the start, only if i press the menu button on the remote control or when the dvd comes to the end the menu will the be displayed.
I want the menu to show at start up.

What the difference between doing it this way or when starting a new dvda project selecting "menu based movie " instead ?

I know it's probably something small i've overloooked.
Please help.
Thanks.
Paul.

Is the menu the DVD Start item (does it have a little 'star' next to it? If not, in the asset window - right click on the menu page and select 'Set DVD Start'.

when you set it to a menu based DVD the menu is automatically slated as the first thing to show.

Use Ians method or delete the footage from DVDA and set it as a menu based DVD then bring the footage back in.
