Coax length for Direct TV high def signal

For DirectTV HD with the big non-round antenna that is supposed to pick up
all the HD (perhaps it's the same for any HD), what is considered the outer
practical limit for coax cable runs?
If distance is a problem, what is the best amplifier (value and quality) to
solve the problem and where should it be mounted?
Background for the questions:
I rent out three duplexes that are located side-by-side. To keep everyone
from putting up their own dishes I hired a local company to set up a dish
network and direct TV and OTA antenna on a tower out back. This all feeds
into a head room. One guy has paid for DirectTV HD and was having all kinds
of signal problems. That was with the dish that doesn't get all the HD
stations apparently. DTV came out and installed the bigger dish that is
supposed to get just about everything, from what I understand. The tenent
just called me telling me that DTV is coming out tomorrow since he is still
finding some channels to be intermettent. I need this information to have a
basis for discussion with the technician. I think we are at 125' - 150'
tops in this situation from the dish to his reciever.
Change the xyz in my email address to MJ for my real email address. Thanks.
