I wonder if the positive pressure generated by the planer fan is messing you up. I recently had issues with my dust collector and re-vamped the whole thing to include a thien baffle and a garbage can collector only to realize after all of that work that the fan on the planer (Dewalt 735) was pressurizing a fair portion of the system. The little fan on the planer was powerful enough that it actually lifted the garbage can separator lid.

“So what” you ask, you have a cyclone and I have something else?? I would take a hard look at whether the system is under vacuum or pressure at the cyclone. I think the planer fan is messing things up. You might have to install an intermediate garbage can collector to balance things out. beyond that, more pictures of the setup would be helpful as well.
