As far as I know you can only do this if you output to DLT (Digital Linear Tape) instead of burning to DVD. To hire a DLT is around £40 for the day. This way you just do it right in DVDSP.

Anyone correct me if I'm wrong on this.

If there is a plug in that allows your burned DVD to be protected it will probably be just as easy to download ripping software to copy it anyway.

Also worth remembering that if you stick a DVCAM or MINIDV camcorder on a tripod in front of a 38" LCD television and record straight off the screen you woudn't see the difference anyway so all this copy protection stuff is a total waste of time in my opinion, if someone really wants to copy it they will, think back to the early 80's when VHS piracy was at an all-time high, those folk literally used to go to the cinema with a Panasonic shoulder mounted VHS camcorder in a large duffle bag and rest it on the arm of the chair next to them and record the film off the screen, these days a plasma screen and a tripod mounted miniDV is much better.

Of course I don't endorse any of this as it will end up putting Hollywood production companies out of businness, but you do see what I mean, concentrate on making good programmes or movies and don't concern yourself with piracy, if Sony, EMI, BMG, Warners and even Apple can't stop it, what chance do you possibly have?
