2 encrypted VG's on 1 disk - HOW?

I don't think it's a "distro related" issue, so i'm posting it here too:

what am i missing?

why doesn't GRUB offer the 2 distros@boot, why is it only offering only 1?? why doesn't it sees the other one??

Thanks for any help...

Let us know the following information:

1. Which are the two distros you are trying to dual boot.
2. grub.cfg or grub.conf (depend on the distro you are using) output. Do the following from the distro you are able to boot in: cat /boot/grub.cfg or cat /boot/grub/grub.conf. Paste the output here so that we can have a look.
3. Also mention (if you remember) on which partition you have installed the the distro that you cannot see in the grub or at the boot selection screen.
