Red face check my wiring pls

Really appreciate if my wiring could be confirmed. Swapping out am 8 yr old Hunter ceiling fan/light/wall switch/remote control fixture, replacing it with a Hunter Crestfield Collection Model number 54204; which has blue, white, black , and ground wires. Also bought a remote control Amazon said would work.
The electrician checked the wires; there are three romex cables entering the ceiling box; each with a black, a ground, and a brown wire. Three brown wires are bundled with a nut; and the fourth brown wire is bundled with 3 black wires. A fourth black wire is capped by itself. the black wires are live. I believe I attach the fixture's black and blue wires, to the box's single black wire. The fixture's white wire must connect to the bundled 3 brown wires in the box. I also need to install the remote. Attached pics of box. Thanks!

Those wires are discolored but are white.
The cable where the white wire goes to the black wires is the switch loop. The black wire from that cable is the one with the orange wire nut. That's the switched hot wire. The two wire white splice is where the fans white wire connects.

What type of remote ?
The one where the control box goes in that canopy ?

Thanks! Yes; Hunter Model 99122 Universal remote which has yellow, blue, white, and black wires and module goes in the canopy. We should be able to retain the original wiring that allowed the old fan/light to be controlled both by a wall switch, as well as a portable remote control. Please can you advise all wire connections?

The white, black and green at one end are the power in to the receiver.
The white, black and blue are the wires from the receiver to the fan.
Not sure what the yellow is. Maybe an antenna ? Look in the install book.

In the picture below.... the three wires are labeled.
The yellow box is where the receiver goes. It is a very tight fit.
You must very carefully work that wiring back into the box.

gotcha. Yeah, that's a tight fit for the standard but shallow box; esp as there are actually FOUR romex cables entering the ceiling box; not three.
The blue wires from the fan and receiver; they get connected to the box's black single capped wire; along with the fan's black wire, yes?
Or to the box's bundled white wires?

thanks so much PJ you are the best!
Hope you have been safe and well lately.

Geez..... they've changed that module again.

Blue from receiver to blue of fan.
Yellow from receiver to black of fan.
White from receiver to white of fan and white/neutral.
Black from receiver to black in ceiling.
Green to ground.

thanks so much! there's already an existing hardwired wall switch that was used for the previous fan. I also purchased this new wall switch; Is it just a matter of syncing the wall switch first, then the remote? Or would the wiring be different in any way? https://www.homedepot.com/p/Universa...9111/203690000

Viewing a Hunter video for the new remote Hunter Model 99122 Universal, they warn it cannot be used with a hard-wired wall remote.

The Hunter kit you got with the receiver and the remote are paired together already. If it's like most Hunter fans.... the remote has a dip switch in the battery compartment.

I don't know if that wall switch will work. It says for Hunter. I've never tried them before. You'll have to try it. I have a Hunter fan and use two remotes. One sits in a wall bracket and the other on my night table.

Pairing the wall control and receiver.....
Turn on the power. Within three minutes of restoring power to the fan, press both the Fan Off button and the High button for at least four seconds. The wall control (B) is now paired to the fan’s receiver (A).
