The problem with many of these types of appliances
is that they include MODEM functions inside the module. For use with a USRP,
you will need to dissect them to get to the physical interface to the powerline.

yeah. I forgot about X10!
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
There are hundreds of these devices available, at prices from
$10-$200. But they all send or receive signals over AC wiring.

Maybe something a little
more accessible from MAXIM:
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
I will poke around the max series evaluation kits to see if there is
something there that could work out at a reasonable price.
