If you're looking for an opinion...:-)  I personally really dislike this.
At a minimum I feel you should leave Play on the Manage side (which would
allow me/us to continue using it in a similar way as we are now).  My
personal preference would be to do away with the Delete/Manage menu and
simply have an Advanced Recording Options button in the Watch Recordings
INFO menu that would contain many of the "more advanced" options (toggle
Auto Expire, Start/Stop Transcode, Start/Stop Commercial Flag, etc...),
while leaving the "more simple" options in the INFO menu (play, play from
beginning, delete, etc...).  And before anyway says the usual, note that
I'm willing to code this. :-)
