Try use FindItem method, like:

...
Dim tmpItem As ListItem, i As Integer
    Set tmpItem = listview1.FindItem(mytext)
    If tmpItem Is Nothing Then
        i = listview1.ListItems.Count + 1
        'listview1.Sorted = False
        listview1.ListItems.Add i, , myext
        'listview1.Sorted = True
    End If
...
