Other criteria for DVD box sets have included all films of a series such as the Star Wars series or the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and a selection of adaptions of a particular author such as Stephen King or Jane Austen.

 Set-top box - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A box connected to a television (or VCR) set's SCART connector is fed with the baseband television signal from the set's tuner, and can ask the television to display the returned processed signal instead.
Before cable-ready TV sets, a set-top box known as a cable converter box was used to receive analog cable TV channels and convert them to video that could be seen on a regular TV (channel 3 or 4 in North America, or channel 36 or 37 in the United Kingdom).
In the United Kingdom, digital set-top boxes (often referred to as digiboxes, after Sky Digital's trademark for their unit) are usually for digital terrestrial television through services such as Freeview, a service operated by the Freeview Consortium, or through digital satellite with BSkyB and also with digital cable.

 "Cigar Box" Crystal Radio Set
A further benefit of using a loop is that it is directional, which allows the set to be "aimed" at a station in order to pick up the strongest signal, or turned away from sources of radio noise.
Due to their durability and attraction, many old cigar boxes are found today in antique and collectable stores, but because of the resurgence of cigar smoking, it is not as difficult as it once was to find a supply of used cigar boxes.
These boxes should be made of either strong cardboard or paper covered wood, and should sell for no more than $1 or $2 (some specialty wooden boxes will be more expensive, but these are not required for this design).

Each character is set on autopilot and is given no real depth to endear the viewer to them or to have the viewer care about their plight.
