Are you sure you put the battery in the right way around ?
Batteries get hot when there is short circuit or very heavy load on them.
If you put the battery in backwards for instance,
Otherwise there is a short circuit somewhere,
You should be able to measure it with a multi meter.

Most remotes dont use the usual battery snaps,
They have battery terminals , and the battery,
is just inserted like the usual aa type batteries,
Yes I have seen it many times,
I have worked for many years in tv repairs,
So I have seen it many times.
