I have a DVD that contains cropped 16:9 video that I want to swap out for un-cropped 4:3 video (weird, I know; it's usually the other way around.) I've done this before using Vobblanker, but I've never tried swapping out multi-angle video until now.
The original DVD has 2 different angles, while the video I'm replacing it with only has one. The angles were only used for when the movie was viewed in different languages so that the appropriate title cards would be shown. However, I only need one angle (the length is exactly the same for both angles.)
Vobblanker isn't compatible with multi-angle video, so I used PGCEdit to remove one of the angles and then attempted to swap out the video using my normal Vobblanker method. It kind of works, but something is wrong with the menu navigation and mapping, I think. When my new DVD boots up, the main menu plays the 1st audio track by default, whereas it should be playing the 3rd by default, as on the original DVD. Another thing is that when I attempt to use the set-up menu to change the audio track and subtitle option, it takes me back to the main menu where I can select "Play Movie", as it should, but then it always plays the 1st audio track anyway, regardless of what I selected in the set-up menu.
I'm really not sure what's happening here, so any help would be appreciated. I feel like it's something that might be fixable with PGCEdit, but unfortunately I'm not very familiar with that program.

Are you sure that the movie you use to replace the original one has the same number of audio (and subtitle) streams? And that they are in the same order? Of course, if it has only one audio stream, the player will always play it, regardless of your selection in the audio menu.
If you want to keep the original audio streams, you may have to demux the audio and subtitles (and chapter points) from the original video (with the angles stripped down), and the video from the 4:3 version, and remux them together. (Note that the 16:9 subtitles may look strange when displayed over the 4:3 video, so if you have a subtitle stream in the same language in the 4:3 movie, you should preferably use it.) Then, import the remuxed version back in the DVD with PgcEdit or VobBlanker.
You can demux with PGCDemux and remux with muxman.r0lZ
