If everything matches up except for the results from that particular website, my first guesses would be an error during the upload of the file to the site or a faulty hashing algorithm used by the site. My personal preference for generating file hashes is OpenSSL since it is widely used and therefore fairly reliable in my opinion as an inconsistencies would be pointed out quickly.
