DVD Menu Creation

I need to create a DVD & have run into a block.  I have tried several of the DVD authoring programs that come with Sonic & Roxio, but all of them have various barriers.  I need to find a DVD authoring tool that allows me to create the following menu:

1) MAIN MENU - Has a background image that is in JPEG.  Then it has a video that is on that screen that continuously loops.  Then it has two buttons, one for each sub-menu.  I have gotten Roxio DVD program to do the initial portion of this by creating an MPEG that has my picture background with the video on it...however, it stops playing it after 30 seconds & starts over.  I really need it to play the full 6 minute video over & over again until someone selects one of the two smaller buttons.

2) Sub-Menu A & B - This sub-menu will have 6-10 videos that are just thumbnails with 2-4 word descriptions under them.  They will just be thumbnails, not live videos.  When someone clicks on one of them, it will play that video in full screen & upon completetion, return to the same sub-menu.  Roxio's program does this fine.  It must have a button to go back to the main menu.

I am looking for a program that has a fully function 15-30 day trial so I can test it out.  If it works, then I will buy the software since I am going to be constantly revising this DVD.  I am looking for as much help as possible, so I would greatly appreciate your quick input.
