Post by MartinBrunner » Sun Oct 03, 2010 8:50 pm

As I got rid of my good old RS800 a no longer need the IrDA-USB adapter.
Any hint on how I can remove the SigmaTel USB-IR driver sw from OSX 10.6?

OK, I did it the hard way... :-)
Delete a number of files, and your are done.
However, no warranty! It worked for me on OSX 10.6.4.
See list for file names to delete
