Tivo Desktop software difficulties

I have seen many posts concerning the same thing I am experiencing with the Tivo desktop software not working. I install, publish and it all works great until the next bootup/logon. At this point, it gives error "tivo beacon unavailable" a check in the task manager shows the service tivobeacon running. Opening the tivo publisher and trying to get to server properties gives the message "did not respond in a timely fashion." I have opened all ports and am able to ping the tivo. Also, I have followed the tivo help suggestion of my computer-->manage-->making sure tivo service is started and set to automatic, it is.

What I have found is if I restart the service here and then go back to publisher, I am able to start the server and all works great. However, this must be done each and every time (my computer-->manage-->restart tivo service) for it to work.

Hopefully someone more knowledgeable than I, can help me out.
