Quick DVD Backup to ISO on Linux

I often want an easy command line way to easily backup a standard definition (non-BlueRay) DVD to and ISO image.  The command line is nice because I can do it remotely on an idle MythTV Frontend machine and can copy the resulting ISO right to the mounted Movies folder.

Get DVD Info

dvdbackup -i /dev/dvd 

Backup whole DVD

dvdbackup -i /dev/dvd -o ~ -M

Make ISO

mkisofs -dvd-video -udf -o ~/dvd.iso ~/MOVIE_NAME

The information was taken from here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dvdbackup
