Do I need a Harmony Remote, Broadlink RM4 Pro, or something else to control my "home theater"?

I have a few pieces of technology in my living room: a projector, an HDMI switch and a sound bar. I have had a Harmony Hub, which is now discontinued, and a Broadlink RM4 Pro, which has stopped working; I cannot get it connected to my home network for the life of me, and this seems to be a common problem. I would like to be able to change the HDMI input with my phone or my voice (with an Alexa) as the switch is in an awkward spot that requires me to move around my living room with the remote to try and get to it. I would also like to be able to turn the projector on and off.

I can spend $200-ish on this, and would like a device that is somewhat reliable. I'm fairly tech savvy, but for example, the Hubitat device I bought is being returned; the set up is frustratingly complicated, and it lacks the capability to do what I want anyway.

Are there any devices that meet these criteria? I'm open to another Harmony or Broadlink device, if they fit the bill.
