I think we're talking about two different things. There's the part where they lose the signal because the booster has gone below the horizon but then the cameras on the drone ship almost always go out as well as the engine exhaust starts to impinge on the drone ship, and then come back on after landing. The last few landings the signal has remained solid on the drone ships.
I thought the cameras on the drone barge usually dropped because of uplink problems that might be solved by Starlink. But it's not a topic I've researched; just vaguely remember hearing about.
