I am getting Dish PPV data from SD. It just plain works, like any 
other data. Perhaps you're missing the XMLIDs for some reason? They 
should have come through automatically from mythfilldatabase, though.

As another poster implied, it's far from easy to schedule a PPV 
program, because you have to use the original receiver remote in Live 
TV mode, but it's quite doable.
