I have done it a few times. If you open a ticket, Ceton will authorize your Echo's IP to load the latest firmware. They can also give you a tool to prep the Echo via USB to a PC, if necessary.

Microsoft, Linksys and others have also abandoned all extender related firmware development.

The older XRV1TV is also compatible and very cheap on ebay right now. All the Vizio QWERTY remotes appear to be identical (XRV1TV, XRV1TV3D, XRT300, XRT301, XRT302 and XRT303).

The Xsight will control all your DirecTV boxes except the Genie directly by RF, no base required. But the catch is you can only pair one of them. The rest must use IR directly or via the base....
