The quad-core processor ensures lightning-fast responses, Ultra HD HDR delivers stunning pictures and 802. When you play recorded content, you can of course fast forward and rewind, and by pressing the “Right” button you can also instantly jump 30 seconds ahead – which is great for skipping those annoying adverts.

So once a programme overruns its scheduled end time, if a tuner is needed for another programme that is starting at its scheduled start time, or later, then the T3-R will stop the recording. YouTube on the Box Your favourite YouTube and YouTube Kids videos on the biggest screen in the house.The major issue we've had reported is that some people have found their T3-R keeps rebooting shortly after booting. With Freeview Play, you get the normal EPG, which you can use to switch between “live” shows – but you can also use that same guide to jump directly into streaming apps like BBC iPlayer, to watch past programmes on-demand. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item.

Sadly, they're mostly negative, which is not helped by how Manhattam as a company completely ignored my feedback and seem unwilling to make improvements to their software.I was – and still am, a big fan of the T3-R, as it combines advanced recording features with excellent picture quality and a snappy interface (see my full Manhattan T3-R review). On reflection I think the 4000T/5000T hardware platform unfortunately left the developers nowhere to go as it simply lacked the horsepower required for a more modern and extensive user experience. Variety, for one thing – provided you’re not too fussed about watching standard definition channels. The remote is of decent quality, too, with large buttons and a white icon in the middle for summoning the Freeview Play user interface.

In hindsight I don't think the box software was quite fully ready, it was rough around the edges, and the promised APP was nowhere to be seen. This is related to an improvement we made for smoothing fast forwarding and rewinding of recordings. In this on-demand age, the need for time-shifting isn’t what it once was – so can the Manhattan T3-R rekindle our love for series-linking?

The T3-R also has great support for subtitles and audio descriptions – if you watch a show with subtitles (which can be turned on and off easily with a dedicated button), recording that show will keep the subtitles available – and you can again turn them on and off with the press of a button.
