[mythtv] DirecTV PPV EPG solution

Hey guys..

There were 2 bugs in the previous version of the perl script to download 
the DTV PPV listings and put them in the database. They were:

1) "Null" entries into the subtitle and category areas -- now just blank

2) Inability to properly insert 1-word movie titles (e.g., Insomnia or 
Frailty) due to a different way of wrapping one-word and multi-word titles 
from the download-end..

Both of these have been fixed, and i dare say the script is finalized.. All 
it lacks now is some way of assessing the category (comedy, action, etc), 
and maybe putting in a subtitle with the year-made or something..

The script can be found at:
