USB-IRT/USB-IR are IR recivers and transmitters built into one and are a great tool. However you need to have a peice of software that can control the device and I highly doubt the Asus software will work with it.
You would need something like Girder to use USB-IRT.
Now on to the Harmony 885, in order to use it with the Asus reciver you need to program the asus remote command into the Harmony remote, if your lucky someone has already done this and you can just do the online setup for it and it will be good to go, so once you get the harmoney remote programed you will still use the asus reciver and asus software to send the commands you want to control.
