If you have both STB's connected via scart why are you trying to tune them in to the RF channels?

Have you got one connected via the RF to the VCR and the other is not?

At a guess I would say one is connected via the RF as well as scart, as you were able to tune it in to the RF channels and store it on ch6, if the second STB isn't connected via the RF try looking on the VCR's AV channels, make sure the TV is on the AV channel for the VCR when looking.

thanks for reply 1 sat reciever is connected with both rf and scart, tried using digibox vcr scart out to panny vcr av2 in only ,but panny will not detect sky???? got round problem by connecting digibox to av1, i then select external on remote this enables me to record of sky (using manual record) not perfect but i do not now need to use a+b switch box, just use chan 6 for other sat recording,
