I wouldn't touch a Manhattan with a bargepole, have read too many negative reports from other hobbyists.

Varied reports on the Technomates, but mostly good. :)

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

The original designs wernt so bad, (analogue or digital), I still use one badged on a Winersat design.

Dont forget the nature of the STB beast is 'smaller, cheaper, faster'. The speed of advance in the industry these days (hours ?) means that if the branded product has a quirk/bug/faulty component/indifferent aftermarket support, which all the last Mnahattans appear to have been reported on, then the company becomes a dinosaur.

Technomate also have quirks, but the praises outweigh the criticisms so far

Stay clear of manhattans.. the boxes are crap and so is their aftersales..

I bought an MX which turned out to have a falty atmel chip, caused it to reboot ect.. email manhattan and they said send back and we will give a price.. they wouldnt budge on the new 16 day thing..

Now i have a technomate 1500ci super
