Remove the valve cover, and watch the cams while cranking it. My best guess is that one if them is not turning. This would explain why there is only compression in once cylinder. Sure the timing belt may be in tact, but if the cam guide pin is sheered off, and bolt that holds gear to the cam is loose, it will cause this.
