Since we're talking remotes:
For my purposes, the Harmony Hub and Remote (where the remote has physical buttons, very easy to use by feel when the room is completely dark), with various activities defined to start watching either a regular blu-ray, a UHD blu-ray, where part of the activity selects the proper User Mode for the Projector as well. What puts it over the top for me is pairing it with an Echo Dot. So I just say 'Alexa, turn on the regular blu-ray' or Alexa, turn on the UHD blu-ray,' or 'Alexa, turn on the Roku,' and everything takes place unattended.
I then use the physical remote to play and pause, control volume, and sometimes select a zoom pre-set.
Not saying this is the only way to do this, but this meets my needs and wants quite well.
