cvlc apparently limited

Hitting enter in a dvd menu just produces an error statement and brings 
up the help screen.  The next command has no effect either.  loop off 
has no effect either.  Fortunately, mplayer dvd /dev/sr0 works like a 
charm even skipping over that loop recording such that the movie starts 
playing as soon as everything loads up.  I'm pretty sure I'm missing 
something here with respect to vlc but can't figure it for now.  
Fortunately mplayer is available though.
