”The Manhattan T3-R Freeview Play recorder is an excellent performer that benefits from a well-designed and intuitive user interface.” ’AV Forums’ – Highly Recommended.

Watch, record and catch-up

The Manhattan T3R meets all your TV needs in a single box. As well as getting access to all the 85 Freeview channels, you can also record your favourite programmes on the mighty 1TB hard drive. Alternatively, enjoy TV on demand from the BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, UKTV Play, My5 and many others.

Freeview Play – catch-up TV made easy
Connect the box to your Internet via Wi-Fi or Ethernet and you can enhance your TV viewing with effortless catch-up TV. Catching up on programmes you've missed is easy - simply use the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) to 'scroll' back on the last seven days TV programmes. With support for the BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub*, All 4 and My5, the great majority of the last seven days’ worth of TV are just a scroll away (requires broadband Internet connection with a minimum speed of 2Mbps). *ITV Hub is available in England, Wales and The Channel Islands.

YouTube on your TV
Supporting YouTube and YouTube kids, you can now watch one of the most popular video services on your TV – beats crowding around a tablet or laptop.

Record up to 600 hours of TV
With its built-in 1TB hard drive, the T3R stores up to 600 hours of TV. Perfect for multiple series and watching in your own time or for recording all your favourite programmes while you’re away. With the 600 hours storage, you can be away for weeks at a time and still have all your favourite programmes stored on your return. Unlike catch-up TV, once you’ve recorded a programme, there’s no time limit on how long you’ve got to watch it.

Rewind and pause live TV and record two programmes at once
Featuring twin tuners, the T3R has the ability to pause and rewind live TV – perfect if you miss a crucial moment while you’ve just popped out of the room. A further benefit is being able to record two programmes at once – ideal for those times when all the good TV is on at the same time.

Ultra HD and HDR support for ultimate picture quality
Compatible with Ultra HD (4K) and HDR, the Manhattan makes the perfect match for the latest TVs and high quality streaming services.

Easy to use
The Electronic Programme Guide makes watching TV, past and present, easy. The T3R’s remote is programmable to learn your TV’s volume, power and input settings, meaning you just need the one remote for everyday TV watching.

Make keeping track of all your favourite TV a pleasure again, with the Manhattan T3R.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb PVR.Manhatten TR3 1TB Excellent PVR which is so simple to connect and use. Adequate instructions and at a fantastic price. I am delighted with my choice and of the advice provided by Richer Sounds. They listen to what you want and offer advice with no pressure to buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TV Recorder Needed a new recorder as my old Humax had died a death. Decided on a different model after reading some reviews. The best thing about the manhattan is my overall viewing experience - the colours are sharper & as a product is so easy to use.
Date published: 2022-05-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple instructions, easy to use, quiet Really liked the option of picking it up from the local shop as an option as I live close to the shop. I have used a few different PVRs before, and previously had 2 different versions of Humax Freeview recorder, not keen to try them again as they seem to always break down after around 8-9 years. I have a Panasonic one which is quite good but the instructions are a bit complicated. Very pleased with the Manhattan, very easy to use, more or less straight out of the box connect it up and ready to go. The other PVRs I had often made a bit of background noise with the recording playing but this seems extremely quiet which is really good. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good... I bought another We love our two year old Manhattan T3R so much that we bought this second one as a gift for friends. These PVRs are so intuitive and user-friendly that they make the native interface of the TV itself look like a bad joke. It also has vast functionality and absolutely perfect recoding quality. And all at a reasonable price - with next day delivery from Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement for old Humax After research placed order T3R 1TB and after 3 weeks so far very happy. The epg loads very quickly [unlike the Humax} and the recordings a clear giving the option to always record in HD. The box was easy to set up and able to record two programs while watching TV using the ariel loop.I have not used all the many features so far.
Date published: 2022-04-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Humax Replacement Arrived promptly in effective and recyclable packaging. Very easy to set up and surprise, surprise the manual is in good English. It picked up all the Freeview broadcasts that are possible in our area. The HD quality whether live transmission or recorded is spot on. The EPG is very good and easy to use. One very minor point is that if your TV is smaller than 40inches, the text could be a bit of a challenge when viewing at some distance. What else can I say but great little unit for the money and of course a very smooth and speedy transaction from Richer Sounds

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long overdue upgrade Replacing satalite TV. Have Freeview on legacy TV but no HD channels, so this upgrade more than fits the bill plus 1TB recording capability, with WiFi and ethernet for catchup as well. HDMI for AV Receiver and numerous other functions I may have a use for but don't know it yet! Inconspicuous, quiet and sleek design. Streaming from Apps on BluRay player so job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saving I’ve been getting familiar with this freeview box for about a week now running it alongside a sky Q 2tb box and I’ve got to say there are pros and cons to both,picture is the same,Manhattan is slower to respond to commands via remote and start up,I prefer the sky channel layout but maybe that’s because I have been with sky for 30years but some of the features on the remote on the Manhattan,ie recording and and channel hopping I find easier the big plus is a no brainier, it’s mine,if all you do like me is record tv channels then this is perfect and 6yr guarantee,sky goes in a couple of weeks and I can honestly say I won’t miss it and at least now I can afford the gas bill,come on richer sounds sell Energy..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Replacement for the Expensive Virgin Media Arrived very quickly with free delivery. Have read many reviews to make sure I got a good replacement for Virgin, only been a week but so far it is living upto the reviews. Super easy to install & trust me I am rubbish (sometimes down to impatience) at installations, it literally took moments to tune, easy to record which is what I really wanted in a freeview box. It was slightly cheaper when I ordered, that & the fact that I can pay in interest free installments & get cashback made me upgrade to the bigger box, 5 star experience all around
Date published: 2022-02-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement for Virgin Media Ok so the number of channels on Freeview is less than I had on VM but when we looked at what we actually watched, Freeview is sufficient for our needs. I spent a while reviewing all the options and settled on the Manhattan 500gb recorder T3r. The box is quick, responsive and easy to use. The planner is clear and we have had no problems with recording and watching programmes. All in all a good purchase. One small but manageable criticism is that the remote feels a little lightweight but we are still getting used to it. Overall really pleased with purchase, and Richer sounds were as usual excellent when buying the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to operate Bought for my elderly Mother, I found it a doddle to set up and she found it easy to use. As usual, great advice from everyone I spoke to at Richer Sounds, and it was on my doorstep the day after I ordered it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bit of kit. Easy to set up, great bit of kit. Bit pricey but you get what you pay for.
Date published: 2022-02-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good! Very easy 5 minute set up, the user interface, and features easy to use. I have only had this unit for about 3 weeks, so cannot comment on it’s longevity. Richer sounds were very good people to deal with throughout the purchasing process. So would recommend to anybody who may be considering purchasing an item through them.
Date published: 2022-02-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great features. Have had this kit about 2 weeks now and it was very straightforward to set up. The quality of picture is really good. Had to to do a re-tune before I could get the HD channels to come through. All good now with all features up and running, so I would recommend Manhattan to anyone considering the freeview route.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to do all I want As still getting used to the features so far seems to do all that was promised when researching what to buy to replace my old box which suddenly stopped working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant product My husband is exceptionally pleased with his purchase as he now has access to a huge variety of programmes than he has ever had. Picture better quality too. He is happy he went the extra mile which proved to be the best option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we were looking for We had a Humax recorder (our second) that we'd had problems with, the same as the first one. At the crucial moment, they wouldn't pause live TV. The Manhattan has been brilliant, the remote is easy to use, it's done everything it promised. It's compact so fits in with all our other gizmos, connected with no problem to our TV via the HTMI cable -- can't fault it!

Date published: 2022-01-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Manhattan T3R 1TB gives faultless results. We read the instructions carefully, set up the recorder patiently and can confidently use all the facilities. We have had no difficulties or problems. Now in our nineties we expect it to last the rest of our days. It looks attractive and it was not expensive. Must remember to wear glasses when using the hand control. The Manhattan is an excellent replacement for our Panasonic which after many years had developed a fault. We telephoned Chester branch to purchase on a Friday, promised free delivery on Tuesday, actually arrived the next day Saturday. Brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and works well Wanted to stop paying for BT Player as price going up and realised we only really record from free view channels anyway. TR3 very easy to set up and though it is taking a while to get used to different format and layout it seems to work very well, so would definitely recommend.
Date published: 2022-01-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A breath of fresh air! After buying Humax for several frustrating years, we have at last found a viable, and preferable alternative in the Manhattan. It is speedy and efficient, its interface is an improvement once you get used to it, and so far we cannot fault it. We can only record two programmes simultaneously, but with iPlayer etc this is not a problem, and its 4k capability at last matches that of our TV. A real find, and thoroughly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and super service Bought this to replace an old Sagemcom DVR. Difference is outstanding the new unit was much smaller,easy to set up with loads more channels. System is far easier to navigate with a very user friendly format and response times to remote commands. Overall a great purchase at a very competitive price with a high standard of communication and Service from Richer Sounds.
Date published: 2022-01-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Switching from cable to freeview is why we purchased the Manhattan T3R 1TB Freeview box. It was easy to set up, very self explanatory, although good instruction booklet was provided. The controller is well laid out and logical and getting around the menu's has proved easy and we are not technical at all. Picture quality is as good if not better than cable, although we did have a HD aerial fitted. It is a compact good quality unit, at a great price.
Date published: 2022-01-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific bit of kit With a 1TB capacity it covers anything you want to record and perhaps keep. It was at a great price and the picture output is of superb quality. Simple to install and operate it's everything I needed.
