I'd suggest using dvdbackup (from dvd-create.sourceforge.net) to dump the 
structure of the DVD to your hard drive (as a directory/file tree), which 
also decrypts the VOBs, then using mkisofs -dvd-video .... to remaster it:

dvdbackup -i /dev/dvd -M -o /path/to/save/backup
mkisofs -dvd-video [other options] -o image.iso /path/to/save/backup

Then just burn the image as usual. (I guess you could save a bit of disk space 
by piping the image straight into dvdrecord.)
