Hi, just connected IceTV to Plex.

Why do you recommend recording for 3 minutes before and 20 minutes after the program?

Hi,

It's because our TV stations, especially the commercial ones, have a "habit" of starting and running shows late so if no extra time is added on the end of the recordings the end may be clipped off which is infuriating.  We've found that anything less than 20 minutes still, occasionally, means you will get caught out.  A tip - if the "show" is sport that can have extra time, tennis must be the worst (!), then always record the following show(s) too as 20 minutes may be nowhere near enough.
