E8362 and E5071 programming compatiblity

I am trying to write a labview program to communicate with an E8362B that also has to be compatible with an E5071C. Specifically I am using the time domain option to measure the delay in a system. How compatible are the programming syntax (I am using SCPI commands) for using the markers - they look quit different??

I am having a hard time finding the peak value in the time domain with programing both machines seem to have. I am defaulting to just getting the X and Y data back for the instrument and finding the peak in my software. I am not able to get the X data back, time in this case. I use the CALCulate<cnum>:DATA? Fdata command but all I get back is the Y axis. How do I get the x Axis data?

Is there an easier way to do this? I am not able to find an example yet of this.
