This is a reply about powerline adapters for the thread "DirecTV is a bunch of crooks" I have powerline adapters connected to a pioneer Elite TV and via an Ethernet switch to two DVRs and an LG BD390 blue ray player. I download DOD and stream Netflix movies almost instantly. I do have a high speed internet connection and the adapters handle it without any problem. The adapters are not connected to the same circuit. I think they are an excellent product. They are working just as well as if the components were hard wired.
