It would be perfect, in particular talking about Plasma Media Center.
The mediacenter, infact, will be the "head" of the home automation in the
next future.
Since I've been busy for some months I don't know what is the actual 
situation of Plasma media center, anyway, this will be one of the first 
to add to that shell.
