So at long last, I'm heading out to college. I managed to grab a CRT last month so I can still play my games and whatnot at school, but the major issue with it is that it can't tune to channel 95, meaning I can't play my Famicom.
While I can buy an adapter (which I'm going to do anyways for the 4-player Kunio-Kun stuff,) I couldn't play stuff with expansion chips like Gradius 2 and Ganbare Goemon 2. I've heard that one of the easier workarounds is having a VCR that tunes up to 95 and running that to the TV through the AV out, but I know not all VCRs go that high, so my question is what VCRs do you guys recommend for playing the Famicom on an American CRT?

Didn't know that! Did the kiosks detect fax disks and refuse to write them, or why are they rare?

Besides the shutter and blue color, the only difference I know that the fax disks has is a certain byte in the header (which is set to $45 instead of $20 like for normal games), and this could be used to detect fax disks.

Congratulations on very nice finds!

The Fax Disk is indeed very rare when it been rewritten. Back in day Nintendo if people live in remote countryside whereas Kiosks not existed, it was possible for them to send in to Nintendo Headquarters so Nintendo could overwrite certain disk for them. I am not sure this was the case with your version, but clearly is not common seing fax disk overwritten.

I have many consoles with socketed chips and it doesn't feel like anyhing's wrong. But of course in time there can be problems when the contacts start oxidising.

Socketing any chip will make the PCB does not fit anymore to the shell Smiley
