Thank you Michael. Appreciate the help.

"Think about what you are saying, SD cannot be HD, period, it is SD. So you need to stop asking how to make it HD quality. Outputting it to tape has nothing to do with it."

I understand what you are saying, I think I meant, is there a way to preserve the HDV quality while outputting to DVD-5? Well, you answered that and thanks for it.
I actually do know most HDV projects are used for online and other purposes but my notion was that shooting in HDV has no point if your target is to make standard dvds. I meant it defeats the purpose.
Although, I noticed that the quality is lot better, so there goes.

My settings varies with different steps taken.

Upper (Odd) Dominant field (NONE squeezes the aspect of the text)

Files exported from FCP into quicktime movie
1) Current settings (.mov)
1) Prores 1920x1080
2) Uncompressed 8-bit 1920x1080

Files exported from FCP to compressor
All Frames ON
2 Pass VBR best

1) HDV 1440x1080
2) H.264 1440x1080
3) HD_MPEG-2 along with DDP 2.0.ac3 audio

Imported into DVDSP with SD DVD settings
SD settings cannot import H.264, HDV and HD_Mpeg
HD settings work fine except they don't play on standard players.

Imported all of them into Toast.
The quicktime files play on dvd players but in lower quality.
HD files burned doesn't play.


Now I am exporting it into Uncompressed 8-bit and
reimporting into Toast to burn it. That would be my best bet to preserve the quality.

I almost switched to Adobe Encore, but read that it has plenty of bugs so I am sticking with DVDSP.

Thanks a lot
