I have bandmap showing both modes in General QSO for
day-to-day operation.  It makes it very easy to tell when
the bandmap has fallen over, as all the spots go cold &
then disappear - on 20m, somebody somewhere is always
spotting something.

There have been a few instances where it seemed like spots
for one band were being ignored, but that has been due to the
source (like no 160m spots being passed at all by what I'm
connected to).

I often fall asleep in the evening, leaving everything in the
shack on.  It is not uncommon to wake up & find the
bandmap blank - uncommon meaning several times a week &
sometimes I have to restart it several times in an operating
session as I see spots coming in but nothing on the bandmap.

Not enough datapoints to help, I know.  Few must be using
"packet" day-to-day like I do, even fewer using TR for
assisted in contests & even fewer for multi-op, or I would
expect more to have noticed.  A 'CC issue?  If the spots
show in ^B, I wouldn't think so.

I do notice that my own spots frequently don't make it to
the bandmap - calls like BY7RADAR.  But other spots that
don't appear are not long calls.

73 & HLNY, VR2BrettGraham.
