Can the cube work like a universal remote control that can turn on/off multiple components (tv, BluRay player and stereo receiver) with a push of one button like a harmony remote from Logitech?
As Man said, that's highly unlikely. It usually requires macros, which is what the Harmony remotes can be programmed to do.

The Fire TV Cube 3 WILL control another device. I have my cable box connected via the single HDMI input on the back and the remote can open the guide and navigate channels. I can tell the Cube "Alexa, switch to cable" from the main streaming menu. I can even tell the Cube to go to a specific channel.

I'm just wrestling with hooking up a new Atmos sound bar to my system. (Haven't opened the box yet but have read the manual on-line.) It only has an eARC output and one additional HDMI port. I want to listen to Atmos music from my Cube, but my TV only has ARC. If I connect the Cube output to the TV, will the TV pass the Atmos signal back to the sound bar that's connected via HDMI?
