Are signals exactly the same each side?
Is there absolutely no difference?
I'd think there would either have to be a very big difference in the IQ signal levels for no difference to be seen.
Or that the signals were exactly the same because they were shorted together.
If there is a big difference between each signal then component differences (R25/26?) or bad soldering around the mixer might cause
As Warren says a good stable signal is useful for this kind of investigation.
An alternative is to run a transceiver at low power into a dummy load.
