ttvdb.py_299404 is the metadata id,
00139139_1CTN-HD is (part of) the channel id/callsign/name data.

It looks like the channel callsign or name has 'bad characters' in it,
probably a newline.

Try editing that channel from mythtv-setup/Channel Editor.

Deleting the recording won't help; any recording from that channel will
cause the same issue. As will other channels with a bad callsign/name.
