Averaging of values within time restraints

I have a need to get the average values of a field within user defined time intervals, between user defined datetime's.


I need the average of the temperature from 11-20-2011 01:00:00(startDate) to 11-22-2011 1:00:00(endDate), in 2 hour intervals.

So the query would be averaging for 2 hours, then the next 2 hours until it reaches the endDate.

So far I have figured out the problem using php and while loops but I would rather execute this with one query rather than potentially querying the database 1000 times.

So far:

SELECT date_time, AVG(input_calibrated)
FROM inputs
(date_time BETWEEN $startDate and $endDate)
(chan_id = $chan_id)

I guess what I really need is a way to get some sort of while loop within the query to run changing the the BETWEEN dates until the endDate is reached.

And direction would be appreciated.

Thank you
