I don't remember the exact name of the remote, as my receiver is away for repair, but I think it's CR80 or something similar. Anyway - I've had the receiver for about eight months. When I first got it, I thought the remote looked really nice; it had a coating that made it feel almost like velvet, in addition to probably deflecting light in a dark home cinema situation. But a couple of months after, the outer coating(the 'velvet' stuff) starts peeling off here and there(small specks), and the whole remote now looks more like ordinary plastic remotes do. It has lost it's initial "fluffiness". I was wondering if this is a common 'problem', if I'm just a perfectionist for noticing, and if it's something that would warrant a replacement remote on the warranty? -Maybe my hands are just unnaturally greasy/sweaty for this to happen?
