Doswell,

I use a TP-Link TL-PA211KIT for this very purpose with my Humax Freesat box. They work well, even in the High Quality setting on BBC iPlayer.

The only "problem" that I encounter is that the home plug goes to sleep when not in use and needs a couple of attempts at using the iPlayer or ITV Player service to wake them up.

Peter.
