Before uploading the new copy, try this patch on it and test it: Go to
block 26,1 (first block of the file "-----------", last in the
directory) and change both bytes at offset $23 and $2A from $AC to $AE.
This should get rid of the protection completely. Now it doesn't check
for 22 read error anymore but now for 00 OK ;-)

Yes, I'm using a similar setup. I have the PC in parallel to the C64
tape port, so I can read a tape from either the PC or the C64. Currently
I can only record from the C64, the PC write line is not connected. For
loading a TAP into the C64 I have to use another connection.
