Max Amount of Menus in Encore CS6 ?

So i know of the 1GB limitation in size regarding menus in A DVD project, but is there also a number. In some discussion 99 comes up as a limitation. Anyone here has succesfully authored a DVD with 100+ menus?

    The 99 comes form the Video Title Sets (VTS) limitations in the DVD spec.


    The full DVD spec allows 99 VTS per disk. And it allows 99 chapters (PGC blocks) per VTS (timeline). But Encore uses "auto VTS" and allows only one timeline per VTS.


    I do not know how this may affect number of menus. Menus can reside in VTS and Encore's limit may or may not inhererntly limit that. But I suspect that because  you have no control over placement of menus in the DVD structure, they are only at the disk level (VMG). I cannot find a number limit to those menus. (There is a 250 menus limit to the number of menus allowed in a VTS, that, again, i am guessing is not allowed in Encore.)


    In any event, I have never authored a menu with over 100 menus!
