can i put the lamp from one (busted) projector (home cinema) into another projector?

I have a toshiba MT 8 projector that stopped working but the lamp has many, many hours left. I have a cheap deal on a B-grade JVC HD1 but the lamp has not many hours left. Is there a way of switching the lamps when the jvc's goes?

Well...a few minutes of googling reveals both projectors appear to use a UHP type lamp. (I found tech specs for the MT 8 and a replacement lamp for the HD1) As they both use the same type of lamp, it seems likely that you would be able to swap out the lamp from one projector for use in the other.
