I've seen this sort of thing before where one MUX is flakey compared to others.
Check your aerial type: there will be a coloured
plastic bit at the end and different colours match different bands that
it can receive. See here:
Then go here:

up your transmitter and note the aerial group.
If your aerial doesn't match the transmitter group, you will need to get
a new one.
