I have a friend who is in need of a decent universal remote.
I have a Cinema7+ with JP1 cable that I use to get advanced codes for my other learning remote.
My plan is to get a good JP1 remote and custom program it for him using the JP1 cable and software.

I started looking at the newer OFA remotes with LCD display and I have a few questions.

It looks to me like the 9910 and 8910 are the same except for RF capability. True?

I was about to settle on the 8910 when I read another thread that claimed the 8810 is a better choice for programming with JP1. Is this still true? Do they have the same amount of memory for learning, key moves, etc...

I looked for the 8810 but all I found was the 8811.
I assume the 8810 is discontinued in favor of the 8811.
Is there a difference?

8810 and 8811 are the same.

8811 does not have LCD.
8811 has a better key layout that 8910.
8811 has an extender (software) available to allow more customization.
They have the same amount of each type of memory. With JP1 you should be able to fit almost anything reasonable you want in that memory. With the extender, you can fit even more into the same memory. If you want to really go overboard, you can replace the 8811 eeprom with a larger capacity one (if you can solder that well). You can't use the 8910 with a larger capacity eeprom.
