They don't. When you set up the converter box you selected either channel 3 or 4 for its output. As far as your VCR knows, it is recording channel 3 or 4. When you are recording from the converter, you always set the VCR to channel 3 or 4.
You set the channel you want to watch on the converter box.
If you want to program recordings, you program the VCR for times to record and you program the (zinwell or dtvpal) converter for channel changes.
You might find it easier to understand if you used composite cables (yellow/red/white) rather than the coax to connect the converter to the VCR, that way you just set the VCR to record from the VCR's A/V inputs

According to the EZ48V manual, you can record analog inputs to the VCR. To do this I suggest that you connect one of the converters to the EZ48V's A/V input. See page 7 (item 7) in the manual for the location. You should then be able to set the converter to the channel you want and have the EZ48V to record it on it's A/V #1 input.
It's possible to use the coax cable to connect the converter to the EZ48V, but then you have to remember to set the EZ48V to the output channel of the converter (3 or 4). This would seem to be another detail to confuse you though.
