It's been a while since I've done any URC remotes from scratch and I need a recommendation as to which model to get, if I can pin it down to one model. The client would like similar remotes in different locations. I'd like to use the same model and set them up to operate similarly.

They'll use RF where needed, and IR routing in at least one location (the dreaded two TVs in the gym you've read about).

There's a home theater with several sources; a couple of locations that are TV, cable box, and DVD player. The gym with two cable boxes and two TVs. I'm using different brands of TV in this room. The locations that are just cable box and TV are going to use a cable company remote.

They've had, and hated, a Logitech remote in the home theater. They consider the theater broken although I could pick up the remote and work it.

I don't require a touchscreen remote and I don't see any advantage to using one, though I'd like to know if there really are any.

I know this is vague, but some ideas would help. Thanks.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

Sorry, hate to be that guy (no I don't) but without models of equipment, can't help you.  What works for one source will not work for another.

I wouldn't do a CCP remote in each room. That limits you to IR control only.

I would quote a Total Control system for a multiroom project like this.

If they forget to turn the theater off and they are already in bed, they can pick up the remote, select the room, and turn it off.  If they can't find the remote, they grab their phone and use the app.  You also give yourself room to easily expand on the system and add smart features.

MX890 if on a budget, but MX990 is the star of the show.
There is no truth anymore. Only assertions. The internet world has no interest in truth, only vindication for preconceived assumptions.
