Using rechargeable batteries

I have a rather strange problem? I replaced the batteries for my V6 remote control with rechargeable ones and as soon as I did this the tv froze and the V6 remote would not respond. I first thought that I would reboot the V6 box but this did nothing at all, the screen was still 'locked'. I removed the rechargeable batteries and put the old batteries back in and the problem went away? Question, does this mean that rechargeable batteries are not suited for the V6 remote or could it be down to the type of rechargeable batteries that I used? This is not a big issue, but more of a puzzle, any thoughts here would be appreciated.

Re: Using rechargeable batteries

Normal alkaline batteries operate at the required voltage (1.5 volts).

Rechargeables operate at around 1.2 volts, so this may be causing issues with the radio transmission.
