How do I measure the differential impedance of a cable on the E5080B?

I'm trying to get a value of differential impedance on a cable on the E5080B.  I tried using Smith Charts but the resulting chart is a mess and the TDR analysis of the impedance shows a pretty good representation but it changes with any movement in the cable. I don't know which values to trust or how to get an accurate reading.  Any help is appreciated.
