You can try to have the harmony learn commands from the imon remote.  
The 'different standard', if I remember correctly, refers to the IR  
frequency used by the imon products. It's my understanding that most  
IR learning remotes won't work in the frequency range that imon  
products use.

No clue if the Harmony 880 does. No clue if what I just stated was  
100% accurate either.

There are two possible modes of learning. The standard Learn and the  
Learn Raw. You should try both methods and see what works for you.  
I've found harmony support to generally be above average so if you  
get stuck consider them a resource as well.
