Not getting a full 21 days

Post by bobviolence » Sun Mar 10, 2019 4:17 pm

Just noticed that I am down to 16 days worth of guide data (usually it hovers around 20).

Digging in, I see this in trace.log: [ INFO] Downloaded 0 daily schedules.

Anything I can do on my end, or is this just Schedules Direct being strange?

(full trace.log if needed)

Yah, looks like it is hovering around 17 days. Don't know if this will be the new norm ... personally, I only pull 15 days so would have never noticed. Schedules Direct will tell you U.S. customers will get 14 days and anything above that is bonus, but it is different than before.

Gracenote in Emby only has 14 days but so does epg123.xmltv so it's a limitation of Emby I believe.

I've monitored the situation since my original post. Everything appears to be working as intended; guide data just seems to have been reduced to 16-17 days. Not a huge deal, just thought something was broken on my end.

For kicks, I went to www.schedulesdirect.org/faq to see what they say ...

*****
How much information is generally available?
Schedules Direct offers two data sources; SD-DD provides XML and SD-JSON provides JSON.

SD-DD data typically has 12 to 13 days of data in the US. The JSON data has about 20, but the further out you go, the fuzzier it gets. The SD-JSON data supports countries outside of US/Canada/Mexico.

The XML data generally has episode descriptions, but doesn't have deep information about the actors.

Some applications have native support for the SD-JSON data. Those which do not, will have less information available. (Some programs may pre-process SD-JSON data to a XML format, but will lose information because not all JSON fields are in the XML layout.)
