It probably wouldn't hurt if he had one of those systems that exhibits the screen "breaking up" like mine does on certain games (Quest of the Avatar).  Three NES systems, two of which have the behavior and one that doesn't.  Definitely weird, and related to the bus changes between RC4 and RC5.

The two spares I have need work on them, though.  I've been putting off a recap; the composite lines have interference or really screwy stuff going on with them.

i wonder what is the cause of sd card problems in general.
 for example i purchased a master everdrive x7 a few months back and it refused to work properly with any of my old small sized sd cards which i have been using on my old model everdrives without issues.
  to get the master everdrive x7 to work i had to use a newer 32gb sandisk type card which is almost an empty card now because the sms library is so small.
 i'm not sure if the issue with the master everdrive x7 and old small sd cards is due to new hardware or something in the new os.
 it does seem strange that the sd card issues have become a major problem since the latest n8 os v20 beta revisions.
 only Krikzz would know what is different with the new os versions in regards to how the sd cards work. but v16 is mostly ok for most users so something must have changed sd card wise in the new os. if only Krikzz can pinpoint the issue.

Flex, did you get your system mailed off? I'm on v14 or v15 I think, so I haven't messed around with anything new, I just really enjoy when problems are figures out and fixed!

Great of you to do this, maybe I need to do it with my TG16 and Everdrive for that, it's never worked...

On hold at the moment, I sent some videos of my issues to Krikzz and he said not to worry as he thinks it may be something to do with the Hyperkin 60 - 72 pin adapter I am using in my PAL NES as I have the N8 Famicom version so I can use it in my AV Famicom and the PAL NES with the adapter, he is going to source one of these himself first. If I'm honest though I am slightly skeptical as the adapter works with no issues on OS v16 unless something changed in the code causing the hang with the adapter, also I still get intermittent IO issues on the AV Fami where there is no adapter in use.

However no one is going to know better than the man himself so who am I to question! lol. Fingers crossed!

I still have the console and everything here ready to post if necessary.

I feel like that's unlikely but I could be wrong. I have the standard NES shell and get some issues still.

guys. if the same hardware setups is working fine with older OS versions without issues then surely by process of elimination the issue must be software related?

I have IO errors when using the Famicom N8 with the stone age gamer FC to NES adapter on the top loading NES with the betas, but not with OS 16.
