For that many different devices, I would recommend getting a logitech harmony remote. It can handle pretty much any device you can think of:

The model in the link below can handle up to 6 devices:

I just ordered the remote from Amazon ,but will not be home until Friday .Does that device have dedicated "buttons for streaming video boxes such as Apple and Roku?
Thanks,Bruce

Yes, it will be able to do whatever the remote that came with those devices could do. You will need to connect the remote to your computer, and then you will be able to program the devices straight from your computer. Both those devices will work just fine.

You can even setup program(Optionally) where you can push a button, and, as an example, turn on your TV, Turn on the Roku, switch the TV to the Roku device. All with one button.

Great ,I think setting it up with my computer will help . Before I was entering codes on the RCA remote and could not set it up . It also did not have bottoms for streaming video set top boxes. Could you send your answers to my e-mail address .XXX@XXXXXX.XXX . I completed the order for the remote you recommended.
Thank You!
