The next time you insert the dvd, you simply go to go>bookmarks ... and you will be
shown a list of cues - in this case the one you have previously named.
The beauty of this is it doesn't matter what the name of the dvd is. If your dvd has a
generic name which it probably will if have recorded the dvd off air, or archived from
VHS, the bookmark will still refer to the relevent dvd. Somehow (despite the name

the right spot when you request it.
