Help with 360 HD DVD Remote

I picked up the HD DVD add on a few days ago I gotta say that even with my component cable hook up and my Toshiba 42LX177 the PQ is quite stunning! I am most likely going to sell my Oppo 981 HD (If anyone is interested please PM me) and also pick up a blue ray player since my local video chain now have the movies for rent. One Issue I am having is I cant figure out how to eject an HD DVD disc with the universal remote once its in. If i go to the dashboard the option that is shown is "Play HD DVD" and with the display there is no eject option how does one do this? Thanks

the top left hand on the remote has the eject button, what does it do when you press it?

there is also an eject button on the left side of the HD DVD Player, press that

When I hit the eject on top it opens my game consoles tray. I have been using the manual button on the left side of the HD DVD drive I was just wondering how it was done with the remote?

Eject on the remote doesn't eject the HD-DVD drive. Ya, slight annoyance, but, you're going to have to walk up to the drive to remove/insert the disc anyway.

It's been a while since I tried it but IIRC when you have the Xbox console up you can use the arrow keys to choose which tray to eject.

Problem is when you scroll down to the lower portion with an HD DVD in the tray the only option shown is Play HD DVD. Like i said my new philips blue ray player needs to be manually ejected as well.

Seeing as you have to manually remove the disc from the tray, whats the big deal about a manual eject button??? It's not like there is a huge delay or anything.
