Default Will the ability to play CH-DVD require anything special with US Players?

I would love to keep my HD DVD drive if importing asian movies is possible. My wife is Laos/thai, 2nd father is Chinese so I have grown to love asian culture. Some of my favorite movies are from overseas for both style and content. I am not sure how this will work as I was under the impression that a different codec may be used?

I just want the ability to watch asian CH-DVDs (meant for that region @ CH-DVD spec) without having to buy a player.

Anyone know?

I would think it would require a CH-HD DVD player. The format is being developed to be only used in China (region coded), but I wouldn't mind importing one, if/when they become available.
