I am using Netgear HDX101 powerline adapters for my main family room mythbox
(SD only). It works very nicely on my "Default" 3000-4000Kbps recordings
but I get some occasional stalls with my "High Quality" profiles
6000-8000Kbps that I use for hockey games.
Your mileage may vary though as it really depends on what you have plugged
into your power lines. In the family room if I turn on the florescent
lights in the garage "High Quality" playback almost always stalls. I tried
one of these in the bedroom and it worked ok until I turned on the treadmill
which dropped the throughput to 0. Luckily wireless works ok in the
So it might be worth a try but make sure you can return it if it doesn't
work in your particular application.
