If you don't have unlimited space, you should have never even brought up 
FLAC.  Lossless multi-channel, 24-bit, 96kHz audio can get real big real 
fast.  You're looking at as high as 3GB/hr for that alone.

Honestly though, there just isn't that much content available on HDDVD.  
At 15-20GB for the main movie, you can still store every HDDVD worth 
having on a single hard drive.
