Cover the 5100's IR window with black electrical tape and control via HDMI CEC or phone app.

Nice thing about Panasonic is you can have up to 3 different IR addresses and load region-free firmware.

I think it would be useful to know what remotes are being used. Some that claim to be MCE or RC6, while they can control media center, aren't really, and work differently. So the keys your script...

Of course it can send RC6 and work with your receivers. A JP1 remote can send any consumer IR signal from any button press, even a protocol of your own design.

And you'll need to switch back to the original lineup name in a couple of weeks when the Rebuild one goes away. I think mine was called Upgrade and was only temporary.
