I'm afraid you have lost the recording. Once the metadata stream from the channel is removed from the network, the recording will no longer play, even if additional EPG streams are added to the channel number again at a later date. Excluding Sky channels (who insist on the metadata being removed immediately a channel closes or is no longer subscribed too), metadata is normally maintained for 3 to 4 months after a channel ceases broadcasting on the network.
