Schedules Direct data field missing?

Beitrag von kevin_barr »

Hello, my first post since 2008! The Schedules direct plugin has massively improved since then, thank you!
I am using the JSON method which is working well with none of the time offset problems that made me give up on the app in 2008, except I cannot get any kind of date for series television shows, only for movies. This is a problem for shows that have older and newer versions like "MacGuyver" and "Hawaii 5-0".

The Schedules Direct site offers a sample of the older type DD data to study, I "think" all of those data fields are also available for JSON? The sample shows a date field for movies like this: <year>2016</year> which your plugin can capture but for series television the only date field is like this:
<originalAirDate>1990-02-27</originalAirDate>
I have turned on every field in TV-Browser data I can find, but none works and there isn't any that resembles "originalAirDate".

Do I need to switch to the older DD data source or is this something that needs to be looked at by the plugin developer?
Thank You, Kevin

The plugin does not ignore the originalAirDate field. I have to take a closer look to see if the processing does not work or the field is empty in the delivered data. TV-Browser itself has only one field for the production year.
