Given that you have 1 happy one & 1 sad one tends to suggest the uni-directional one is faulty. Maybe try putting the crook decoder in the other loco to confirm beyond doubt that the decoder has failed. (ie get the same result)
Sadly these decoders do not have a good reputation although I have 8 fitted in various loco's and havn't had any problems, maybe something to do with my using an Elite controller. You can buy the bachmann decoders from Hattons for £9, so only fractionally more expensive than the R8215, probably a better bet at the budget end of the market.
