I'm almost done with my personal build, and I'm now configuring my layout. I decided that I wanted to make a kind of dual-stage idle state where it would play an ~1 hour long video after 60 seconds then when the video finishes, it would then go into normal Attract Mode. To do this, I changed AttractModeTime in settings.conf to 3701 (the length of the video) and set the video to play after 60 seconds using <onMenuIdle>. The video will start fine and play for a minute or so, then suddenly the menu will scroll to the next console with no input. It doesn't seem to do this with Attract Mode on, because it will stay in Attract Mode indefinitely when it's enabled. Also this happens even without the video when Attract Mode is completely disabled, and it has happened themes when I tested it, so I don't think it's anything in layout.xml. Just wondering if this was something I could fix, or if I should scrap the idea. Thanks!

Can you upload your settings.conf and log.txt files from the main directory? I'd like to take a closer look.

I attached those as well as my layout.xml in case there might be something in there  :)

I'd say it's this setting:
attractModeCollectionTime = 105
Set it to 0 to disable it.

I'll give it a try when I get home! That would make sense since the video plays for around 45 seconds or so before the menu scrolls, I just assumed that time would only affect atract mode. Thanks!
