4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says 31 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase
A low spec (no HD no record) freesat box which is a very pleasing by doing exactly what is says on the box.
Good value for the spec!
I bought it to cancel a sky subscription and was very easily able to unplug the old sky box plug in and in a few minutes set up this box!
I experienced no funny business with comlicated set up or any other problems
All in all a very happy after acouple of week's use

4.0 out of 5 stars Basic but user-friendly SD Freesat box 21 Oct 2012
By James B. Spink HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
The Manhattan Plaza DS100 is a basic, but quite user-friendly, Freesat SD box. If you have an old Sky dish still cabled up all you need to do is connect the screw-in plug to the LNB input on the back of the receiver and use the supplied Scart lead to connect to your TV. If you have a dish with a quad LNB this receiver would make an ideal option for satellite TV in another room by cabling a spare port from the dish to a bedroom etc. However, if you are starting Freesat from scratch you would probably be better off going for a higher spec receiver than this, one with HD for example.

The DS100 is easy to get up and running as it more or less does everything itself - all you need to do is enter your postcode during setup to receive the correct regional channels from the BBC and ITV. You then get your own regional BBC1 on 101 and ITV on 103 - however, all the BBC regions appear on higher channel numbers but if you want other ITV regions you will have to add them yourself. The other channel you need to add manually is Sky News, if you want to watch it, as it is not part of the Freesat package of channels.

The picture quality of the DS100 is OK, but not as good as some more expensive receivers - it's alright on a TV up to about 22" but any bigger and you will start to notice its limitations. The audio is good - but the receiver has no dedicated audio-out so if you want to connect it to an amplifier, for example, you will need to use an adapter from the second Scart socket. The box is very small - nowhere near the size of a Sky box - but represents pretty fair value for money for someone wanting a cheap subscription-free satellite TV option.

5.0 out of 5 stars solved my reception problems! 5 July 2012
By Cathy A
Verified Purchase
The box arrived in less than 24 hours and was quick and easy to install. It replaced a 4 year old Goodman box which finally failed completely a couple of days ago. I've had intermittent reception problems for ages and the EPG has never really been usable. I thought the picture was OK until I set up the Manhattan box. Brilliant reception and great picture, everything works just as it should. Money very well spent, I'm a happy bunny!

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY 24 April 2012
This receiver is unadulterated rubbish. Just had it installed by switchover help scheme. The picture is way worse than the analogue that was on there. EPG flickers so much it made me dizzy and in addition, its functionality is awkward. I use favourites a lot and its implementation is awful. Stupidly you cannot sort them, also pressing the Fav button changes the channel instead of displaying the list of favs, again stupid. It is slow to respond and the writing is not visible to someone with poor site. Don't buy this pile of junk.

5.0 out of 5 stars It does what it says on the box! 8 May 2012
This Freesat digital receiver was just brilliant for someone non-technical - it took just minutes to set up and, providing you already have a satellite installed, it worked immediately - just perfect thanks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Manhattan Plaza freesat receiver DS-100 4 May 2012
By John
Verified Purchase
One of these receivers was fitted under the Government Scheme by Meridian, so I purchased two more for other Analogue receivers we have,using Amazon. They both arrived on time,were new,both worked o.k.,and I have no complaints,since we lost the analogue signal completely on the 18th April. and are now happy with Freesat. And the price was right!

4.0 out of 5 stars Saves Money 29 July 2013
Verified Purchase
Enables one to view a wide range of programmes, the only downside is the rather confusing handbook to enable recording and playback.
