I am in the market to buy a new tv. The Samsung UE40F6800 - I like the 400hz CMR - and the cheaper model the ue40f6320, at 200hz, I could live with it. The former comes with both freeview and freesat, but is it worth paying an extra 300 for it? (plus the CMR difference). Thanks. I would be using catch up tv a lot, so the higher CMR may be pertinent.

That has to be your choice in the end as both TVs have catch up options. If you went for the cheaper Freeview-only TV then you could complement that TV with a Freesat+ (=PVR) or Freesat freetime (=their backscrolling EPG Youview-type box) http://www.freesat.co.uk/get-freesat/recommended/boxes so the final cost might work out to be similar so it's swings and roundabouts. One thing I would say is that having both Freesat and Freeview together in any form is a great combination because you get the best of both worlds - the wide range of channels from Freesat and the UKTV & Quest channels from Freeview.

What I would suggest doing is taking a look at the user reviews of both TVs and take that into account as well when making the decision.
