How about http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/RecipeCheck for this?

In answer to the generic question of "read a PTV from another
wiki", there's not a supported way to do it.  It would require the
local PHP to be configured with url_fopen support (many are, many
aren't) and it could badly increase the traffic load on the remote PmWiki
system that is having its PTV's read via the net.
