But on the flip-side, the ethernet over powerline will bust through that $50-60 budget for sure. I've never done it, but from the prices I've seen, you're probably looking at a couple hundred.

Pfft, no way. A twin pack of 500Mbit adapters (which are good real-world for about 100-200) will set you back $50-$70. The ZyXELs I use at the store cost me $59.99 for two.

Going to be the cost of a wireless AP on top of that if the powerline adapters don't have it built in, or an ethernet switch if not going wireless (to get more than just the TV connected, like also the bluray player).

Okay, $20 for a wireless AP or a gigabit switch on top of the cost of the powerline bridges. Either way, it's still less than $100, not "a few hundred"
