Each mux is transmitted from a different tranmitter. These tranmitters may
well be in the same place, but are seperate physical bits of kit.
They don't necessarily all point in the same direction or run at the same
power. And this type of problem is fairly common with old analog antenna

Recheck all the connections as a first move.
Try to get the antenna higher, this usually help.
Try moving it to left/right and see if that helps.
Finally, a booster may well help, but isn't guaranteed.
