DVD Menu Authoring Troubles


I recently picked up a sweet deal on a dvd burner, and so I've decided to take up making DVDs from old home movies. But since I'm still waiting for my dv bridge to arrive, I decided to do some practice with a couple Red vs Blue movies.

I got the movies encoded fine, drew up the menus, and went at it.

Here's my problem: When I start playing the dvd with xine (I haven't put it on a DVD yet), I can't choose any of the movies I encoded because they don't show up on the menu at all.

Here's what xine has to say:

Code:
libdvdnav: Using dvdnav version 1-rc3a from http://xine.sf.net
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.8 for DVD access
libdvdread: Couldn't find device name.
libdvdnav: Can't read name block. Probably not a DVD-ROM device.
libdvdnav: Unable to find map file '/home/mike/.dvdnav/.map'
libdvdnav: DVD disk reports itself with Region mask 0x00000000. Regions: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
libdvdnav: next chapter failed.
And here's my dvdauthor.xml
Code:
<dvdauthor dest="DVD">

  <vmgm>
        <menus>
        <pgc>
          <vob file="thx_dvd.mpg"/>
         <post>
                jump titleset 1 menu;
         </post>
        </pgc>
        </menus>
  </vmgm>

  <titleset>
    <menus>
      <pgc>
        <button> jump title 1; </button>
        <button> jump title 2; </button>
        <vob file="rvb_menu_final.mpg" pause="inf"/>
      </pgc>
    </menus>

    <titles>
      <pgc>
        <vob file="psa1_dvd.mpg"/>
          <post>
            call menu;
          </post>
      </pgc>
    </titles>

    <titles>
      <pgc>
        <vob file="psa3_dvd.mpg" />
          <post>
            call menu;
          </post>
      </pgc>
    </titles>

  </titleset>

</dvdauthor>
The images are here:
menu background
menu hilight
menu select

It knows where the mpg files are, since it plays the thx_dvd.mpg file when you start the movie.

Any ideas?
