I'm having the same issue on my 2.2 ctdi. Vibration through the steering wheel, dash and driver seat whilst idle. Any ideas?
Accords tend to suffer from CV joint/driveshaft wear, so one/both may be the cause.

Or your DMF may be getting tired, how many miles have you done? I presume it's the original DMF/clutch?

It's only done 92K and there are no issues when it's moving. Manifold has been done so it's not that. I'm guessing the clutch/dmf is original.
It's been like this for a few thousand miles.

I would've thought the driveshaft wouldn't exhibit problems when the engine is idle.

Engine mounts?

Doh yeah, good point about being stationary.

Indeed, could well be one or two tired engine mounts.

Does the engine run nice and smooth, well serviced, etc. A dodgy injector, glow plug, sticky EGR valve, inlet leak might cause uneven idle.

A dynamic HDS test can check various components but before you go there have you cleared and checked any error codes?

I haven't checked if there any codes to be cleared.

EGR valve could be a problem. When it was mapped the EGR test was not responding... sometimes I hear something opening or closing in the engine when I'm stationary, and at that point it vibrates. Touch the gas and it stops vibrating. Would the EGR cause vibration?

It's regularly serviced with Honda parts and it runs smooth.

It's good that you've only ever used genuine parts.

Yes, a sticky EGR valve would cause uneven running as the engine won't be seeing what the ECU thinks it's setting.

Does the vibration ease after a few seconds at idle?

Is the EGR valve on an Accord mechanical? - it's vacuum activated on a Civic.

The TypeAccord forum suggest EGR and/or throttle body maybe the cause.

A clean and lube usually fixes the issue, would be a cost effective fix for you ;)

It always vibrate at idle, well, at least 80% of the time. It sounds boomy when it's cold, a bit loud then quiets when warmer, not to its original refinement best, though. The rev counter is steady.
