thanks for your oppinion.

The batteries for the remote control Type CR1616 are not so easy to find and
are somewhat expensive.
Did somebody try other sizes / more powerful / cheaper batteries?

Anyhow, this design with a local battery in the remote control is not real

My latest experience with new batteries in the remote control:

1. long key presses do not work for fast forward and fast backward. Just press
once and wait what happens.

2. I had an impression that some erratic (mis-)behaviour may depend on power
status of the Recorder (!?) - even with new batteries in the remote control.
I have to re-check the next times when battery status is lower whether I can
repeat the behaviour.

Did sombody make similar observations?
