Depends on the type of cable but anything over 50 yards you should start being concerned.

Thanks Paul, as I expected. My dishes are about 80-90m away. Digital signals fine and its not a problem. Just being nostalgic..........

I once put an entire 100m roll of (cheap) sat coax onto my 19E dish as an experiment and couldnt see any difference :D
