I'm assuming when you mention OLED, you are referring to the buttons on the device that will change various modes and show on the OLED, or something else?
Our IR codes are pronto HEX universal format, can be loaded from Harmony remote, iRule and such or any universal remote. > that's the same than any previous devices from us.
Vertex have OLED screen but it's only informative, on Maestro/Diva/Vertex2, you have same informations displayed and various info pages to cycle thru like Vertex but you can also enter system menu, toogle choice, etc... so the OLED also helps making the configuration directly. (you can refer to Maestro usermanual, it's explained)
People interested in anything related to Maestro/Diva/Vertex2, can refer to the thread for each device (Vertex2 thread not yet done by AVS members).
The platform is the same, just each device have more or less dedicated features around it.
Maestro is obviously most advanced since it have 2 units and specialize in HDBT transmission.
Diva is most advanced standalone as it have HDR>SDR converter, ambient light, lag tester
Vertex2 does not have any specialized feature like HDBT, HDR>SDR, ambient light or lag tester but because of that, it offers true 18Gbps splitting at output (while on Maestro, one output is HDBT and on Diva, one output is 1080p SDR) and it also have unique way of cutting output that was added to solve issue on Sony Android TV when in standby mode or any such situation where you need to physically disconnect a cable from the output, Vertex2 can do such thing via software, as far as we know, no other device in the world can do that.
They all share same Web based , IR, IP, RS232 control, all have dedicated audio output for any sources at input and world first features: eARC/ARC sound extraction and forwarding to any AVR input, TMDS autoswitching allow to autoswitch source that keep sending +5v in standby, etc..
