Kmttg - broken?

I have, for the past 6 months, been trying to get kmttg to work as a service on my computer. Now, I have built another computer, and I get the exact same error messages and problems on the new machine (ruling out all hardware causes for my problems). Finally, after finding a tip on an obscure blog, I've messed with the Javaw.exe file, and am making some progress, but now all I can get is a "Status=start_pending".
It never starts.

I've run everything as an administrator, I've added shows to the transfers list (I know you need at least one), I've run the files from their folder locations rather than from the GUI.... and yet it doesn't work.

All I want to do is have auto transfers work, and be able to see my PC from my Tivo menu to pull shows when needed.

The amount of hoops I've been having to jump through has made me wonder whether or not kmttg is actually being used by anyone, or if it's abandon-ware and I'm wasting my time. Because to me, it seems like it's totally and completely broken - more than any software I've ever encountered.
So - it is even possible to get it to work? It seems no....

I'm using Windows 8.

You can't be that clueless. The KMTTG thread, right over here (showing up right next to this thread as I type), is one of the more active threads on TCF.

KMTTG does not work this way and let you see the PC from Tivo. To do this, you would also need PyTivo.

I think I'm better off just sticking with Tivo Desktop then...
It's not great software, but at least it partially works.
I'm glad kmttg seems to work for a few people, but for me, it does not work at all, and seems like it never will. I have a rig with new parts, and so I'm guessing more people will run into problems as they update. Ah well.

Appears you are wrong. He not only can be but is.
