Frontend Services API doesn't playback recording when frontend isn't in "Watch Recordings"

When using the frontend services API to start playback of a recording on a frontend, the frontend will not start playback unless it is already on the "Watch Recordings" screen.
What is expected to happen: When using the PlayRecording? service on the frontend, it should start playback of the recording regardless of what menu the frontend is currently displaying.
What actually happens: If the frontend is displaying a screen other than "Watch Recordings" the frontend will switch to the "Watch Recordings" screen and stay there without playing back the recording.
Extra Notes: If after reproducing this bug, you immediately send another "PlayRecording?" for a different recording (after the frontend has already switched to the "Watch Recordings" screen), it will play the recording that was initially requested. When exiting the initially requested recording, it well then start playback of the second requested recording.
This appears to only be an issue with recordings. Using PlayVideo? when the frontend is on any screen works as expected.
