Pioneer DVR-109 riplock issue

Hey, All! Just got my DVR109 the other day. Updated to f/w 1.05. Quite hesitant to try 1.09 due to some bad threads. Here is some information. You decide:
I used DVDXCOPY to back up Cellular(original dvd movie), just to see how it would go! Used 8x BenQ DVD-R(does not overspeed to 12x, btw Ridata 8x burns at 12x).

         START TO FINISH IN LESS THAN 20 MINS(ripping+burning)

Thats pretty good, but not sure if DVDXCOPY has something to do with the copyrighted movies not locking at 2x as the older DVR drives, when ripping. I am happy camper.
