Hidden iDVD3 Themes!

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
So I was looking through the iDVD3.app package in order to change the colors of some of the premade theme backgrounds and ran across a bunch of inactive themes. Looks to be 19 actually. Can't seem to figure out how to get them to show in iDVD though. A few of them are: Surfs Up, Leather, Happy Days, Magnetic Moments, A Day to Remember, etc. I've been able to duplicate a theme, change the background.tiff image, and have it show up listed in iDVD as a selectable theme. That's pretty cool.

Any ideas on how to activate these hidden themes though? The only difference I can see with them compared to the ones that work is that they have spaces, instead of underscores in their names. I tried replacing the space with an underscore, but it didn't work.

Anybody know why they are there? Are they incomplete themes that will be enabled through an update later? Seems pretty weird to have that many extra themes and not be able to use them.

    Really strange indeed. <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

    I miscounted... there are actually 18 themes. Looks like they are from iDVD version 1, per their version.plist files. Still can't get them to show up though.

    it's on <a href="http://www.xlr8yourmac.com"; target="_blank">XLR8yourmac.com</a> , hopefully someone will figure it out.
