Sony Backlit Remote for 4K components

My components include a Sony 4K 930E 55" Television, Sony 5000 Soundbar, Sony 4K 800 Blu-Ray along with a DirecTV HS17 with a Genie 2.

My primary remote has been a great Harmony Elite. Since programming it for the above gear the Elite acts a bit strange. Tonight, I discovered it is because my Sony gear are using Bravia Sync. The bad news if I turn off Bravia Sync the 930E's CEC/ARC no longer function thereby preventing the use of HDMI connectivity from the Soundbar. Audio would be down graded to an optical cable.

Since none of the OEM Sony remotes are backlit I'm hoping to discover either a cure for this Harmony Elite issue or find a backlite Sony remote capable of handing all of my Sony gear.

Right now I'm lost and bewildered. Please help.

Can you define "strange" for us?
