Hi Harshit,

First of all, just a note, whenever you have a new thing to discuss, it is
a bad idea to reply to an existing thread which is not directly related
(this is popularly known as hacking others' threads :P)

To the topic, I personally don't think it is a good idea to let the user
change the background of the media center. The rationale behind this is
that the background is part of our UI so changing it can lead to visual

I'll love to hear from others' views on this, especially our Usability
