  3. Hi,

    Just a small point, but it’s Manhattan *Plaza* DS-100, not Manhattan DS-100 🙂




  4. It’s now listed on for £54.99 including free delivery and £52.99 on Amazon including free delivery.


  5. Rubbish remote control, but a very reliable box with 2 scart sockets. Much better than the Goodmans or Grundig.


  6. I’ve tried to get a replacement remote, no luck, Got a Universal Remote but that wouldn’t work, got a ‘copy’ remote and that doesn’t work either. All in all a bit of a failure – a freesat receiver but no facility for ‘red button’, ‘subtitles’, ‘programme info’ etc. The shop I bouth the original from have e-mailed ‘Manhattan’ but got no reply so overall poor customer service. Just wish the dog hadn’t ate the original!


  7. @Bill

    We’d give the unit 10 out of 10 as it does everything it should do for the price, and is exceptionally good value for a basic Freesat receiver.

    The star ratings are nothing more than visitors to the site giving their rating, but reviews would just be the comments above.


  8. Hi,

    I just noticed the complaint about not responding to a customers retailer… we respond to all emails, but if it was somehow missed I apologise. They could always have picked up the phone?




  9. my problem is I have no signal om all my freesat channels would it be possible for technical help by phone to talk me through it or to see what’s wrong I have a Manhattan DS100 freesat box.


  10. My mother in law has a Manhattan Plaza DS 100 freesat box which she is unable to turn. She has changed the batteries in the remote and also tried to turn it in manually, but it still does not work. Have you any idea what the problem is?


  11. Have a Manhattan Plaza DS 100 for about 6 years now, still working ok.
    But, the remote is rubbishy and has always been so, almost from the beginning.
    I have had to open, clean loads of times, it just gets sticky inside.
    None of my other remotes have that problem.
    It is very cheaply made.
    Now it is at a point where I can press and press, nothing happens.
    Then all of a sudden it works ( a little bit) almost unusable because of the remote.
    A new remote will cost almost as much as the whole setup ( box, dish and installation) cost – £16 – which was installed for my pensioner Mum when Freesat started as an intro offer.
    Pity the remote is rubbish, rest of box is good.
