DVD menu names can be somewhat confusing. The Title menu is another name for the Video Manager Menu, the main menu for the entire disc; it generally lists all the video title sets available on the disc. The root menu is the menu for one video title set, which can contain one title or a group of titles. All the titles in a title set share the same Subpicture, Audio, and Angle menus.
