Satellite signal strength

I was going through my diagnostics today, and noticed my satellite signal strength seemed low. It was in the 50s earlier, and now it is 37. Nothing has changed outside at the actual site of the satellite. Also, today, one of my DVR recordings randomly stopped recording after 9 minutes. Not sure if it's related, but thought it worth mentioning. How can I increase my signal strength? And, what should it be?

If you are getting signal loss or pixels on the TV when viewing something live then it may cause the DVR to only record for the first few minutes if the signal was lost. Increasing the signal strength would most likely be re-pointing the antenna to get the best possible signal.
