Arch chapter menu questions

I know that I am doing something wrong here, just trying to figure out what!

Ok, I have a video with 12 chapters.
1) I set up a menu based project.
2) I import the media file
3) From the media file, I create an INSERT SCENE SELECTION MENU
4) I go to the Scene selection ( next page) and set it up the way I want.

So on the first page of the DVD intro, I have PLAY ALL (full media file) and CHAPTER SELECTION (which takes me to the scene selection menu - 2nd page).

It all works great, but when I watch any of the chapters (scene selection page - 2 - and play any of the chapters) and then I hit the MENU button on the DVD player remote, it automatically goes to the MAIN PAGE (intro) and not back to the SCENE SELECTION PAGE (2) with all of the chapters listed. Any ideaS?

I want the PLAY ALL end/menu action to go to the first page, but I want the SCENE SELECTION PAGE chapters to end/menu at the 2nd page but it is always reverting to the first INTRO PAGE.
I have used the MOST RECENT PAGE action, but I have to think there is another way to get back to the different menu...

I hope that is clear.

I think you are making it harder than it is. If you have a Play Movie button and then a Scene selection button the navigates you to the 2nd page...."return to recent page/menu" will do the job for you. The only other way to do it is put your footage on the timeline twice, which I don't see any point in doing.

Hope this helps,
