Mmm, there obviously is a communiction problem here :-|
Maybe the new code will help illustrating the 'problem'. I updated the
code to use the setting table. The code now looks like:

// 2 functions to fetch the ExtensionMapList from the database.
void MythCDROM::BuildExtensionMapList(void)
    NewExtensionMap("VideoExtensions", MEDIATYPE_MVIDEO);
    NewExtensionMap("MusicExtensions", MEDIATYPE_MMUSIC);

void MythCDROM::NewExtensionMap(const QString& medianame, const int
    ExtensionMap *eMap = new ExtensionMap;
    eMap->Mediatype  = mediatype;
    eMap->Extensions = QStringList::split(",",
                                gContext->GetSetting(medianame), "");

    if (eMap->Extensions.count() == 0)
        cerr << "Empty setting for entry: " << medianame << endl;
        delete eMap;

As you can see from the above code, the BuildExtensionMapList() function
has the name ("VideoExtensions") and the #define (MEDIATYPE_MVIDEO) hard
coded. So if a _new_ module, say mythrecepy, is also storing files with
a certain suffix, you'll have to update the function with a line:
    NewExtensionMap("RecepyExtensions", MEDIATYPE_MRECEPY);
to facilitate this.
You can get around this by not using gContext->GetSetting() but writing
a query that selects the '%Extensions" entry from the settings table and
insert the info of each row returned using NewExtensionMap().
This is what I tried to explain in my previous posting to this thread.

I'll do some more testing and I'll have to write de dbcheck code. I'll
send in a patch tonight.
