Why on earth would you not put the freakin eject button on the front of a device that's bound to be put in a rack?

Just get a rack shelf and place the unit on it. I know someone else who has a Mid Atlantic rack, and that's what they did.

Obviously you can do that, but when all the other equipment is in faceplats creating a nice clean "flat" front surface, it looks hokie to have a 2U shelf and a gap above it. That being said, form must follow function in that case. Or just program the remote to take care of it all for you

Is this LG the only combo player available right now? I know the samsung is coming out sometime this year, but just wondering.

There is a current (10/15/07) problem playing some blu-Ray disks (Fantastic four 2). First the disk will prompt for a firmware update to be able to play the disk. After the upgrade the video will play but you get audio drop out. I have tried both DD5.1 and DTS audio tracks. Both have the audio drop out.

If I get this player, will it output HD-DVD and BluRay via component at 1080i resolution?

Yes, but it will NOT upscale most std DVD. The upscaling and 1080p only work accross HDMI.
