Software-based HD DVD players

To summarize what I understood so far: I can burn HD DVDs using Nero and watch them on either the AVeL LinkPlayer or the Toshiba A1 connected to an HD monitor.

How about software-based players? I have friends who use a PC to feed HD signals into their HD monitors, using an ATSC (off air) TV tuner PCI card. Now, if I burn Windows Media HD content onto any media, that will also be played back on this system, right? But how about HD DVD content burned onto a regular DVD? Are there any (PC) software based players that will play that?

I'm using a Mac, The built in DVD player will play the HD DVD's just like any other disk.
