Your channel ID(s) is/was broken, it looks like.

If this was an old recording, then the channel ID may have been broken 
before the restore--at which point the filename may actually be the 
broken filename above (though it doesn't seem to be as that file doesn't 
exist).  If the filename is correct, you probably just need to go to 
mythtv-setup and fix all your Storage Groups.

If it was a new recording, your channels are currently broken and you 
need to do: 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/264034#264034 (video 
source part, at least, but the caption card part may be required, too).

Note that channel ID's must be unique integers.  (And that manually 
hacking the DB is never recommended.)
