Joerod, I used DVI Detective successfully with an HTPC outputing NON-HDCP 1920x1080p.
If your HD DVD player output is 1080p and thus HDCP protected, it is unfortunately normal DVI detective cannot pass it. I apologize if my post, for lack of details, let you believe the opposite.
I believe Gefen is working on an update of DVI Detective which may also be "HDCP passthru" so you may want to check that with their friendly support and return your present version for exchange with the new one when it becomes available.
Just in case, also check that your DVI Detective is properly programmed and locked on your projector, and test the connection direct from HD-DVD->VideoProj with the DVI Detective Power Supply IN : contrary to what the manual says, even after locking, you may need the power supply in some cases; also if you have an AVR or switch in between, it may be the source of your problem.
I could not understand why I did not get a stable image either, just to discover my Yamaha RX-V2600, supposedly "HDMI 1.1" was actually incapable of passing thru 1080p video
