Background Music Time in the Menu Designer

I did the following:

  1. Created an auio file, length 30 seconds, doen't matter as to file format .wma or .mp4 & etc.

  2. Also created a video with same music.

  3. Playback of music or video is 30 seconds long.

  4. In Menu Designer, creating new or using existing Menu, selected the 30 second music file as the Background music.

  5. While in Preview, music plays for 13-14 seconds only, not 30 seconds.

  6. So does this mean the background music can be no longer that 13-14 seconds long?

  7. But as long as the music is attached to a video and use the video as part of the Menu, then it does play for 30 seconds, music and video.

  8. However, one cannot have the music as the background music; one has to select “No Background Music” in order for the Menu to last 30 seconds. This is because, if one uses another audio as the background along with the audio within the video - it will play as well, starting after 13-14 seconds of the of the video playing

Am I missing something here as to how to get one is suppose to get more than 13-14 of background music into a Menu within the Menu Desiner???? Thanks,

No such problem here. Decided to do a lip sync 30 sec. background video test. The root, scenes, and subititle page all repeat at 30 sec. with perfect lip sync.
