The format is dead, only Toshiba, LG and Samsung (the Venturer was a Toshiba clone) ever supported it hardware wise and there's no way they'll go back now. It's too costly for little gain.
Denon have talked about supporting HD-DVD in future BD Players but I seriously doubt they ever will. They are releasing a BD Player with DVD-A and SACD support though. I guess that's much cheaper to produce and those formats aren't technically dead, just slowly dying.
Buy the LG BH200/Samsung BD-UP5000 or get two Players while you still can buy HD-DVD Players.
