SyFy SP for The Helix fails?

The new SyFy program The Helix starts Friday 1/10/14 at 10pm EST. Can anyone set a SP for this show? I like to be sure it's my Premieres causing the conflicts before I report it to TiVo. Both conflicts are bogus, but I'd like a second opinion. Thanks.

Set up a WishList...that worked for me. SP did not, either, when I tried earlier this week...

EDIT: I tried scheduling an SP just now, and it worked fine. I deleted the WL...

I finally read the conflict message: it was a conflict with Justified (Tuesday at 10pm on TNT). I removed the Justified SP, then added The Helix, then added Justified back. Well, it's cold outside so this game passes the time.

You can reorder the priority of your Season Passes...

I was unaware that a conflict would prevented by changing priorities. I'll try that next time.

Moving Helix above Justified would have had the same effect as what you did...

SPs for Helix will be messed up the first week since the first two eps are being shown as one ep on Friday night and then split into separate eps after.

I wouldn't call it messed up; TiVo is doing what it's designed to do...you won't miss anything...

I set Helix to record on its second broadcast to avoid the confllict. Turns out this is a two hour premier so things may be different next week.

Yours could be different, but my SP was not recording the double episode, but rather the split up episodes later in the night. I had to set the double ep manually.

That's interesting; my SP had three recordings scheduled -- both the double ep premiere and the separate first and second eps (recognizing them all as first-run eps). I canceled the single ep recordings.

That's what happened for me.

Perhaps he had a conflict for the double-episode?

I redid the SP after deleting it and the manual recording and it's now showing as you guys describe. Not sure what the problem was before.

I did get the Tuesday night conflict like the OP, but that doesn't matter since that ep will already have been recorded.

Rob had the easiest workaround. The schedule can be confused by midnight. No matter, I moved the SP to a different TiVo, changed it's priority and it looks ok now. I'll give it a week to settle down.

Helix would not come up for me in a search by name. Had to do it though the guide while watching Live TV. It then gave me the option for a season pass as well. Strange, but all is well now.

I have the same search problem. But my expectations for the guide and how it interacts with the SPM is very low. I'm waiting for comments on the 14 day guide for the new DVR+. That guide (OTA Only and $) doesn't have SP ability, but the DVR+ seems like the best non-TiVo device to come along in quite a while.

On Saturday I'll try a SP for The Helix again.

The Helix and its SP are happy now. It fixed itself.
