I did have menus on mine. Just a basic picture, with text buttons. I
used DVD styler (IIRC) which created most of the stuff for me, even
the iso (although I tweaked it my self manually later).
It basically is a front end to DVD author.

I think now that I have the concept, I'd be able to do lots more,
including add a chapters menu. I had put the chapters in, so you could
skip to the next part of the play, but no menu for selecting chapters.

I think what I would do with TV episodes, is have it auto play, but
still have the menu accessible. It's all to do with pre/post commands
in the dvdauthor xml file.
