They didn't specify, but moving 12 inches or so was all I did, and it
worked great.  The particular symptom that this fixed, if I remember
correctly, was adequate signal and symbol strength, but symbol quality
that kept dropping off (and, obviously, an unencrypted channel).

But again, I'd suggest contacting Silicondust directly if you're
having trouble; their support department is quite responsive and can
have access to your particular data if necessary.
