Phew! Okay, so here are my suggestions.
Since the only "new" additions that seem to create a problem is:
a) use of a previously unused splitter port
b) new coax
c) new Cat6
d) new mini box
e) a pair of new muxlabs
1) with nothing "new" connected, have you tried swapping the new mini box with the old (working) mini box to verify that it configures and works properly?
2) with nothing "new" connected, have you tried swapping the new muxlabs with old (working) muxlabs to verify that they work (perhaps one at a time)?
3) is it safe to assume that more than one minibox can be supported by the Contour?
4) Swap splitter ports?
5) Check integrity of the "new" coax cables? (shorts, bent, center pin)
