Comment (by jrrandall):

 Replying to [comment:3 pkendall64@…]:
 > I have the same problem and I have worked around it by first sending a
 SendAction command with the action set to "TV Recording Playback". My
 application first calls GetStatus and only send the action if it's not
 already in the recording screen "playbackbox". After sending the action I
 wait 1 second before starting the recording playback. I'm not sure if the
 1 second wait depends on the number of recordings or not, but it works for
 me.

 not required.

 I know this issue is relatively ancient, but I had the exact same issue
 and implemented a similar "workaround" although after digging into it I
 believe that the intention of SendAction is not necessarily to change the
 page displayed on the frontend, but rather to change the context of
 subsequent commands being sent.  It would be great if SendAction supported
 the old "jump" commands like the NetworkControl plain text interface does.
