Reset HDMI Screen Resolution On Manhattan Plaza HD-S Freesat HD Box from 1080p to 1080i, 1080i to 720p or 720p or 720i

By mistake I set the HDMI resolution on my Manhattan Plaza HD-S to 1080p instead of 1080i

Sadly my 2003 Sony TV doesn't support this resolution so I got a black screen with no easy way to connect up a SCART cable to get the picture back to 1080i

Since Manhattan have removed the support page for the HD-S following the release of the HD-S2, it was not easy to find out how.....

Googling around revealed a PDF file on line that bizarrely enough did not actually contain readable text, however the online manual for the NEW model does, at it works for the HD-s:

"If you set an incompatible resolution or move your receiver to a different TV that doesn’t support the active resolution, ensure the receiver is turned on and then press and hold the button for 10 seconds. The resolution will be changed to 720p, which is supported by all HD televisions."

I have since found a searchable version of the PDF and archived it online

Enough? [please contact me if this helped you ]
