Topic: What happens with the SPDIF Copy protection bit with RME devices ?

Imagine somebody wants to transfer his own recordings from a DAT to PC.
But this doesnt work because the DAT sets the copy protection bit.
DAT -> optical SPDIF -> Recording device -> USB -> PC

What possibilities are there to solve this ?
By routing the SPDIF signal to an AES output because in AES the copy protection bit has a different meaning ?
Other ideas ?

I can only assume that the action is legal, it was a guy from another forum who asked this and I am wondering if problems like this maybe happen more often so I am only interested in, whether something like this can be fixed easily.

I think the copy protection bit is only transmitted with consumer formats like optical etc, not AES

Also my understandling from handbook. Thanks.

SCMS is totally ignored at the SPDIF inputs. As simple as that...
