Can anyone advise the estimated lifespan of D-size batteries in a Master Control Panel MCP5500.

I seem to be getting a 'No Control' error message and I am wondering if the unit is chewing through batteries even when on Standby

Is it worth buying recharegable batteries? or removing a battery when not being used to avoid trickle discharge?

any experience of others welcomed

When batteries are running out of power, the MCP will start flashing and show "Battery" in the display.
The "No communication" comes when the Beomaster doesn't reply to commands sent from the MCP.
Either the MCP doesn't send or the Beomaster doesn't receive or the Beomaster doesn't send or the MCP doesn't receive.
Something blocking the way between the two or the Beomaster is in a wrong option setting or some technical defect.
