I doubt it: I have three telephone cables across the sight line of my main dish and experience no problems whatsoever.

Yep. Good point - there must have been a trigger for the perceived need to realign.

lads problem solved, i connected the the sat up to my dm800se and bingo, levels back up, so it must be the alps tuner in the 800pvrHD box, thanks to all who replied
