No signal strength this morning

Woke up this morning to find I have 0 signal strength on every single sat on all boxes. Went to Bed last night and had 80-90 on just about everything. I only know because I was having problems with a few of the remapped chanells 501, 206, 209.

My dish is pole mounted on the ground, so I thought someone might have moved it, but I just checked and it seems fine. I'm scheduled for an alignment this Friday, but is there anything else it could be?

Just unplugged my co-ax cable on one box, connected and rebooted...now my signal strength has returned to 80-90. But certain channels, like 537, 501, 206 I get intermittent perfect picture / searching for signal / completely broken up picture.

Think I have a bad multiswitch?
Is there a multiswitch in the system? If not, the dish probably got moved.
There is a multiswitch, but right now, everything is back to 80-90 strength. Maybe you didn't see my second post.
Sounds like it's probably a re-alignment problem. Please post your signals on 99(c):

Menu Button > Parental, Fav's & Setup > System Setup > Satellite > View Signal Strength

Navigate to the 99(c) satellite with your remote.
