I have a similar issue with Uploader theme. It appears the extracoding framework is corrupting input data and/or not parsing the values correctly.
Even updating through database does not work. Leads to reverting to theme defaults set by class defaults.

I have a support ticket in for the same problem in H.E.L.P. theme. I sent login information one hour after David requested it, waited a full day, and then received another request from him for the same information. I sure hope he can get it working soon, because I'm doing this for a non-profit and we need to get it up and running before their annual fundraising event in a couple of weeks. Our content is already done, so all we need to do is redesign the site using this theme, and not being able to use the theme options after downloading the most recent version from themeforest.net has brought our work to a screeching halt!
I wonder if Milan ever got his site's theme options working? We definitely cannot wait 3 months to get started!
