This is most likely due to you performing a RESET on one or both of
the radios. Performing a menu 40 (RESET) on a UV-82HP switches the
radio to VFO mode and disables the "VFO/MR Switching" setting. Don't
ever perform a RESET on a UV-82HP unless you have a computer running
CHIRP and a working programming cable close by.

After download from the UV-82HP, CHIRP inherits this VFO/MR Setting as
"disabled". Until you enable the setting in CHIRP, uploading the image
into any UV-82HP radio will disable the setting preventing the radio
from switching between VFO and MR modes.

Settings -> Advanced Settings -> VFO/MR Switching (BTech UV-82HP only). [X]
