I am one affected by the HRD logging issue. I can either move on from HRD or abandon JTAlert.
Last evening I downloaded the DXLab Commander and DXKeeper. I was able to set it up in under an hour and logging contacts with the support of JTAlert. Uploaded to LoTW and also downloaded from them. Still have some configs to do but the move was almost seamless.
Have moved on from HRD. Can't wait for JTAlert 2.9.
