is the quality of the video degraded when a Hi8 tape (ie recorded on a Hi8 camcorder) is played on a 8mm camcorder ??

According to your 8mm camcorder won't be able to play the Hi8 tape even though the tapes are the same size.
The way the information is encoded on the tape is different.

Agreed. I don't believe you can playback Hi8 video on a normal 8mm camcorder. However a Hi8 tape might contain video in normal 8mm format so it's worth checking.
