As far as I am aware and have seen nothing that disproves it, dichroic filters do not fade! According to the latest times for D76 at 1-1 at 68Deg is the times you are using. Is your camera meter accurate? Is the film speed adjusted right?

I gave up Ilford MG a long while back because of similar problems to yourself. with no filtration you are supposed to get Grade 2, I estimate comparing it against a non multigrade paper it is about 1 grade softer.
