If you have the same problem with the longer cable and the antenna downstairs.

It could be the cable is losing too much signal, is it a proper cable, just not properly installed (yet) or is it a dodgy cheapo extension cable?

If it’s a decent cable you can try shortening the cable slightly, a couple of inches will do, sometimes it’s possible to have a resonant length which will cancel a specific mux, of course you might then cancel a different mux! At least then you would know the cause…
