No movie SR in K3 with manual lenses

Unless I am forgetting some setting it seems the K3 does not allow the option to enable movie SR for non-AF lenses. Seriously Pentax have done such a stupid job with the movie SR after the k5 series, the whole thing is a joke. Why remove a perfectly nice hardware SR system option fro this crap.

Works for me.* At least it says it is turned on and I am able to toggle "off/on". Perhaps if you get up on the other side of the bed?

While its true that the "digital SR" is not nearly as useful as the good ol' SR, you might still be doing something wrong.
Make sure you input the lens' focal length. Also, there are some options that can disable SR, like timer or whatnot.
