Haven't done in RTI for about a year and never any of their Zigbee stuff. Have a client with existing RTI stuff. We may just upgrade to Crestron but if not. 

With the XP3, it has Zigbee built-in, but AFAIK though lowest Zigbee remote model is the T2C, is this correct? 

To use 433 with the XP3, I would have to get an RM433, right?

T2C+ will do zigby, wifi, and RF 433. XP3 is limited with input ports. Ideal for limited sources system. I'd prefer XP6.

The T2C+ is not a wifi capable remote. It would be cool if it were but it is not.

What we need is a XP3/T2Cs+ combo kit. This will make it possible to put a XP processor in just about any job.

 This job would be using the T2Cs remotes and require IR routing. So the XP6 and a RM433 and i'm good right?

My questions with teh XP3 was what is the lowest level remote that could work without having to get a RM433? is it the T2C+

The T2Cs+ would be the least expensive option.

They did away with the required touch screen snap to grid. The T2C+ has been
quite solid for us after the first round of Zigbee issues, I imagine the T2Cs+ would
follow suite.

First the XP3 does do IR routing, 3 ports of IR and one RS232 and you could put an ECB5 on each of those 3 ports. Plus you can use IP control that's discrete. What is your problem with the RM433? Using 433 is the BEST way. It's much more stable then Zigbee. But it's great to have Zigbee too!
Who says you can't put 61" plasmas up on cantilever mounts using toggle bolts? <---Thanks Ernie ;)

Except RP-1, every RTI processor will need a RM433.

correct. go with the T2Cs+ and the 433 to get the reliability for the system..

Use the 433 for basic oneway control and add the zigbee for 2way feedback only.. So if there is any issue with zigbee the client will not be stuck with a working system,
