Repairing rotted patio cover wood

A couple of the cross beams on this patio cover are rotting on the top (where nails that hold the 1 X 1's meet the cross beam). The entire cross beams are not rotting. Where the beam meets the house, they're holding up well. Also, out towards the neighbor's yard, the cross beams are holding up well.

So my question is, would you replace an entire cross beam? Or could I get away with cutting for example an 8 foot section and then joining it to the existing cross beam with galvanized brackets? As you can see, these cross beams hang from the giant single beam, and of course hang from where they meet the house.

BTW the giant single beam at the top is still holding up fine

Background: When older houses in my neighborhood get put up for sale, they get gutted and rebuilt. So I don't want to spend a fortune on repairing this patio cover. At the same time I'm not planning on selling any time soon. If this patio cover completely rotted, no problem. I would just rip it all down. One option, at some point in time would be to cut out the furthest part the runs past the giant beam towards the neighbor's yard.
