I need more info about what you're describing. Are you referring to the menu on a burned video DVD when it is being played? If so, what menu style did you choose? Maybe you can do a screen capture to show me what the slab of color looks like. I think you may need to play the DVD using VLC Player in order to do a screen capture.

Thank you for responding. Attached see pix of image (theme used is "Satin"). I also tried saving as disc image, but problem still there. Interestingly, when playing DVD on set-top box, I get image as seen in attached shot(note overlap above frame). When playing DVD on laptop, yellow foreground color fits inside button frame. ??

I've also notice this effect for current active menu button on standard DVDs I've created using Toast 11. When selecting a different menu button, the yellow highlight moves, thus obscuring the thumbnail pic. I think did the same thing with Toast 10. Surprisingly, when creating a Blu-ray disk of same content, menu buttons do not have this problem. Besides Satin, not sure which templates have this problem. I use Mystic and Warp quite often and think it affect them too.

I tried this on my system and the highlight appears correct on both the Mac and set-top player (which is not a Blu-ray player). I also have looked inside the IFO file using MyDVDEdit and think I've found the problem. If I have MyDVDEdit display it as a 4:3 menu it displays the background as a 16:9 letterbox (black bars above and below) but the button remains the same size as when displayed as an anamorphic 16:9 frame. In other words, the black bars shrink the height of the background without shrinking the height of the highlight so it appears too tall. What this is telling me is your standalone player is displaying the menu as letterboxed 4:3 rather than anamorphic 16:9. There should be a setting in the player's set up menus to correct this.

Maybe, but does not resolve issue of color in front of thumbnail. Support asked for my system info, but no word from them for 2 days...

But it does on my player. The highlight is within the frame, not beyond it as displayed in your screen shot. Your player is letterboxing a 16:9 menu rather than showing it as an anamorphic 16:9. It may be that your player has a setting to change this.

 

Toast writes the ifo so that the menu (and video contents) can be displayed by the player as widescreen 16:9, letterboxed or pan & scan. The player's settings decide which is its preference. I suppose you could go into the ifo with myDVDEdit and change it so it can only be displayed as widescreen 16:9 so your player has no choice. But that's a hassle I hope can be avoided by some different preference settings in your player.
