I have got an Amstrad HD box & when I do a signal test I have noticed that both the signal strength & signal quality of both inputs 1 & 2 vary - the other day I left the signal test page on while I got a beer & when I can back the bar's showing the strength & quality were moving from about 50% strength to 75% and then back to 50% :confused: - Does this mean I need my dish re-aligning or do you guys get this on your HD boxes.

Some variance is normal because of atmospheric changes and other factors. Unless you see the picture breaking up or start completely loosing channels (Channel 4 was the first to go for us) then you need not worry.

There could be trees near the signal path, this does make a difference.
