Man, once I get this remote to perform all functions of my individual remotes, this will kick a$$. Getting there, is quite a tedious journey though.

I got my 700 a month back. It came with Re-chargeable batteries. But it would constantly give me these messages...
1. Unable to charge batteries.
2. Cant find batteries.
3. Insert batteries.
And then after removing/reinserting batteries it would give me the same messages but luckily sometimes it would start Charging and then reach the Fully Charged state.
But even after Fully Charged it would only last a Day or 2 days max.
So i just bought regular Duracell batteries and it has been working perfectly on the same batteries for the last 1 month.
What does this mean ? Is the Re-Chargeable batteries bad or is the Remote itself bad ?
I use rechargeables but hardly ever charge them in the remote. I typically have fully charged batteries waiting and swop the batteries out when the remote complains about low battery power. Much quicker than plugging in the remote and waiting for it to charge.
I think my remote came with Sanyo Eneloops, which is my rechargeable of choice anyway.
