Pulling data from past

Post by caseystrom »

I am working on compiling some data for specific shows to pull information such as averages length of a series, etc. When I try and pass in an old date, I get the error: The startTime you specified was invalid and has been corrected to 2011-02-01 . I have the correct information in my soap.xml file I am using, but I am not getting anything. Here is my soap.xml file:

Code: Select all

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?> <SOAP-ENV:Envelope 
xmlns:SOAP-ENV='http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/' 
xmlns:xsd='http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema' 
xmlns:xsi='http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance' 
xmlns:SOAP-ENC='http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/'> 
        <SOAP-ENV:Body> 
                <ns1:download xmlns:ns1='urn:TMSWebServices'> 
                        <startTime xsi:type='xsd:dateTime'>2010-02-01T00:00:00Z</startTime> 
                        <endTime xsi:type='xsd:dateTime'>2010-02-02T00:00:00Z</endTime> 
                </ns1:download> 
        </SOAP-ENV:Body> 
</SOAP-ENV:Envelope>
I would really love to use the information from the Schedulesdirect database to grab old schedules. Any help is greatly appreciated!!

-Thanks,

Hi Casey.

<startTime xsi:type='xsd:dateTime'>2010-02-01T00:00:00Z</startTime>

Let me be the first to welcome you to 2011. :)

The data servers don't intentionally serve previous days, but 1-2 days are often available. A year? nope.

Is there any way to pull past data? I want to know things like every time the show Lost was on TV since it aired.

Nope..

Tribune has a historical database, but we don't subscribe to it. Maybe try epguides.com.
