I have an interesting project to solve and I need some help! I am looking to buy/build a universal remote control for my home theater set up. There is a bit of a twist though...

I have a pretty standard home theater set up (AppleTV, Xbox One and ChromeCast with OTA TV via my Xbox One). The kicker is that I do not have a normal "receiver" as I have a Bose Lifestyle 20 system that is about 20 years old. So far, I have not been able to find a universal remote that works since the Bose remote is RF while all of the rest of the components are IR.

My questions are:
1) Does a RF/IR universal remote exist? (I haven't found one yet).
2) If one does not exist, is there a way I can build one? (I'm looking at you Raspberry Pi)

Thanks,
James

Just watched the #twitkh  Universal Remote episode.  Thanks for the info +iyaz akhtar.  One question I have is about RF remotes.  I have an old Bose Lifestyle 20 as my home theater audio set up.  The remote that controls the volume, etc. is an RF remote that has decided to not work anymore.  Bose really doesn't have a replacement remote as it is quite old.  Are there any options that control both RF and IR devices?

Quite simply, do not miss these guys as they tour. One of the best live shows I have ever seen, and I have seen hundreds of live shows...
