[mythtv-users] 'powerline' ethernet experience?

Anyone got any gems for me? I have difficulty running cat5/6 and
wireless is giving me grief. Powerline ethernet (the 200Mbps version)
is looking attractive.

Any experiences, gotchas etc? The system is promoted as being ideal
for video streaming so I am hoping it will be OK. I realise real life
won't be 200Mbps, but that shouldn't matter as long as it is within a
reasonable percentage of that.

Is there a performance degradation if I want to run two clients via
powerline? Iy'll be:

backend<-cat6->switch<-cat6->powerline adaptor<-powerline ethernet->two clients
