    So, this got me curious enough to do a little testing. The HDDVD has .EVO files instead of the .VOB files a DVD has. I authored a test HDDVD to a hard disk directory. I renamed the EVO file with a recognized mpeg extension, and it imported into Edius and played on the timeline just fine.

    I doubt you'd want to try to edit with it, but either the Edius timeline or Procoder would provide an way to encode the file to an editing codec.

    If the component output isn't protected or downscaled, then you'd be able to capture the component output with Pegasus.

    There are also converters that convert DVI/HDMI to RGB for displays.
    Again, questionable legality, but it seems a number of folks with game consoles and older non-compliant or problematic displays have been using them with success.

    There are applications that can do this, but they are of questionable legality. (regardless of the current situation here)

    Can you get the file off of the HD-DVD? I'm only going with loose theory here--nothing I've done, but shouldn't you be able to do some kind of simple conversion to a HDV TS? Maybe with MPEG Stream Clip or similar?

    Thomson Grass Valley Pegasus is the only solution we have at the moment, that could do this. Although I believe the HDMI capture would be disabled due to the way HD DVD players scramble output of even non-commercial titles - you'd likely have to capture via hd component.
