Most likely a marginal signal strength. Check your antenna, cabling, connections before doing anything else.

Have you also checked the antenna and connections?

What signal strength are you seeing on each mux? Where are you? What antenna do you have? Which transmitter is it pointed at?

As mediaworks is the only problem it would appear you have marginal/fringe signal on Mediaworks hence random pixelation.
You need to improve your antenna/cabling to increase signal strength to the same level as the other Mux.

Trees are growing now. More leaves, more attenuation of signals. Wet leaves because of rain/dew, again more attenuation.

Things dont usually fix themselves like that, its a cyclic thing with all the other things that affect radio signals.

If it comes back, see if there are any trees in the direction of the transmitter that you can trim back.
