Would you recommend getting a Steam Link to play my steam games on my TV or something like a refurbished Dell like this with a HDMI out.

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)


+Shannon Morse+patrick norton​ Good place to buy flash drives in bulk on the cheap? Want to do many projects with them from installation drives to VM drives.
