Mongo is the Poopli updater GUI for non-Windows platforms, created by Little Blaine (the application) and ndrake (OS X packaging) in 2008.

I have updated Mongo for OS X to v1.3.2.

UPDATE: You may download Mongo from the Planet Replay software archive: http://www.planetreplay.com/software/mongo/

The only change from 1.3.1 is that the embedded rddns command is now universal, so it will run on Intel.


There must not be many people still using Mongo; there were only 15 downloads of version 1.3.1, which I released in 2011 for Snow Leopard compatibility.

I have downloaded and run Mongo on my iMac running Yosemite, but Im not sure if it is working. Is there an FAQ for Mongo? Does it work with Yosemite? Is there other software required to run Mongo?

Unfortunately the Mongo documentation is lost; it was on the original developer's website, but the domain has expired.

The only other software required is the Mono runtime environment:

To check if Mongo is working:
  1. Launch Mongo. Does it display the shows on your ReplayTV?

  2. You can use the View options (Categories, Channels, Flat) to control how it displays the shows

  3. Does the main window have a green checkmark next to RDDNS and Backup RDDNS? This indicates it is able to reach the RDDNS servers, and they are up.

  4. Select Tools > Update Now. Does it say "Finished Poopli Update!" at the bottom of the screen? This indicates it was able to use the Poopli Updater to send an update.

  5. Go to Poopli.com and verify that that your shows were published to the server.

  6. You can use Tools > Schedule Updates to set it to automatically, periodically update Poopli, even when Mongo isn't running.

    Mongo uses crontab to schedule the update, which is an old method of scheduling tasks. An alternative is to create a launchctl plist.

  7. Mongo can do IVS tests. Select Tools > Send Show, enter the ISN of a ReplayTV (which could be your own), and click IVS Test.

  8. The final test would be to use Mongo to actually send a show.
