For homeplug try Solwise. 72 quid delivered for pair of 85Mbps.
But Cat5 is preferred anyway :) And cheaper. You can get CAT6 for less than 2 quid + delivery.
yo check maplin im sure there in the sale page ( Home Plug )

[B]14Mbps HomePlug Ethernet Adaptor Kit [/B]

Don't think that using 14Mbps (6-7Mbps in reality) for video is such a good idea :)
i was waiting for that after i posted so i had a back up plan (:

And what about the other side? :) You need two of those to work. The link I posted above (Solwise) is for kit of 2 homeplugs.
get wireless save all the hassel....................
From my experience (I am using both wireless and homeplug), the Homeplug is much more reliable for video streaming than wireless. YMMV :)
thanks for the replies.

I already have a wireless router . can i just plug a wireless adaptor into the slingbox then?
Yes, you need wireless bridge. Something like this.
