Found this on my computer and it gives me a crash notice but when I click ok it won't shut down. Have to reboot.  did a search spotlight and don't see it.  Any help would be appreciated on how to get rid of it.   Last program I downloaded was Angry Birds Space.


I am on an intel iMac with 10.6.8

iMac 24, Mac OS X (10.6.7)

    Ok it happened again.  Here is some of crash log?  I found it in my library and there is a uninstall, can I delete it and get rid of the problem?  The crash report comes up and repeats so I have to restart computer to make it stop.

    I cannot find any information on what it does?  Any help would be appreciated.

    I don't know exactly what it is but after some searches it seems related to the Sky Go Player or Sky Go Desktop ?

    Did you or do you use them ?

  • pineaire Level 1 (35 points)

    No I do not use either.. not sure why it is on my computer but hate to delete if needed.

  • mcbuffy Level 4 (1,050 points)

    It is not installed by default in 10.6 or 10.7 so you can try to put the folder in your trash, restart and see if everything works (especially the applications not installed by default).

    And if it's in your User folder like the crash log mentioned, then it was installed by an application.

    If everything works you can empty the trash.

    You don't risk anything with your system.

    Thank you McBuffy

    I had this happen on my computer as well. It happened right after I installed the DirecTV app that enables you to watch programs on your computer. I uninstalled it using the UnInstaller in the folder located in user/library/NDSPCShowServer Folder and emptied the trash... Voila!

  • gatorfantom Level 1 (0 points)

    Thanks Phinias -- this is exactly what I was looking for.


    I installed the "DirecTV Everywhere" thing last night as well, and it's been nothing but headaches and disappointments, so I just want it gone.

  • tablack Level 1 (0 points)

    same prob but cant find it in library or apps

  • Phinias Level 1 (0 points)

    Be sure you're looking in your USER library not in your computer's main library...

    it would be user/ (probably your name) /library/NDSPCShowServer.

  • gatorfantom Level 1 (0 points)

    UPDATE: The uninstaller ("uninstall.command") didn't work for me. However, after doing a little more seaching I found a couple mentions of this same issue on a handful of other boards. The threads were all in Spanish, but thanks to Google Translate I was able to figure out what they were talking about -- and then track down all of the associated files that need to be removed by hand.


    As soon as I moved the following 5 files to the trash, the Console errors stopped:


    user > Library > Internet Plugins > PlayerPlugin.bundle

    user > Library > LaunchAgents > com.nds.pcshow.plist

    user > Library > LaunchAgents > com.nds.pcshow.uninstall.plist

    user > Library > NDSPCShowServer > NDSPCShowServer.bundle

    user > Library > NDSPCShowServer > uninstall.command


    Hopefully this helps someone.


    (By the way, while I was browsing a DirecTV forum last night looking for answers, I saw at least a dozen reports from Mac users who couldn't get the video player to work. Looks like DirecTV may have rushed it out the door. And of course there's no support / documentation for it anywhere on their site.)

    Thank you so much. It worked. I was loosing my mind!!

  • gatorfantom Level 1 (0 points)

    Awesome -- glad the info helped someone else!

  • lakeshore Level 2 (295 points)

    So glad I found this thread.  I installed the DirecTV Everywhere app yesterday, and ever since I've been having a lot of trouble putting my iMac to sleep.

    I know the feeling! It may sound a little sick, but seeing that others are having the same problem can be somewhat comforting.
