Oooh, yeah. I forgot about X10!
I once used an X10 control system to turn a stirrer on and off under program control for an electrochemical cell I was running for a month. Long story, unrelated to Gnu Radio :-)

The problem of connecting electronics cheaply to house wiring was implemented maybe 20 years ago in the X10 system, in which simple controllers would turn lights etc. on and off. There are inexpensive computer interfaces as well. Here is just one example of the sort of device that could probably easily be hacked apart to expose the line connection alone:
There are hundreds of these devices available, at prices from $10-$200. But they all send or receive signals over AC wiring.

They have an evaluation kit which might have some testpoints to
connect up to a USRP, or try to ship off samples through their 10/100
ethernet interface.Thanks, Brian!I will poke around the max series evaluation kits to see if there is something there that could work out at a reasonable price.
