Can I copy HD-DVD to a normal DVD (i.e. shrink it)?

    I currently have a DVD reader and a DVD reader/writer and I use with AnyDVD and CloneDVD with great success.

    If I replace my DVD reader with a HD DVD reader will I be able to record a standard definition version of those annoying HD-DVDs that are not combo formatted?

    Yes you can but if you do that it will just be the same quality as a dvd.
    So u might as well just rip the dvd.

    That's great news.

    The point is that I want to be able to watch my non-combo HD-DVDs on my HD DVD player and on my normal DVD player (like in my bedroom). If the combo isn't provided it's nice to be able to make a normal DVD copy.

    Transitioning always sucks, at least you're still getting the DVD version with many discs. With Blu-ray you always have to buy the DVD version as well.

    Hopefully, CloneDVD will let you do this in the future.

    If I were sitting on the jury for someone who had copied a rental dvd, after purchasing the title on HD DVD or a Blu-ray, I would find them innocent.
