I found the problem in (LiveView autofocus) is happens in original and patched no mater what you use!
The problem is shutter speed if shutter speed is below 1/50 you lose autofocus (When bush the button the screen go to black color and don't wont to focus because all is black)! If shutter speed is more than 1/50 all is ok.

This is for information of users!

p.s. For me this is not problem because when shoot video I don't go bellow 1/50 :)

I installed the patch (Video 1080 HQ 54mbps Bit-rate to make NQ the old HQ) to my D600 and I can confirm that it now records in 54Mbps, the recording times are shorter, about 9:30 mins for 54mbps, can't say that this is a problem unless you are shooting a live performance.

The first videos I have taken (1080p 24fps) don't show any image quality change, towards better or worse, but I will make a few more test videos to be sure, the video is still recorded in YUV 4:2:0. the link below (available for 7 days) is for 4 videos so you can also check if you can find any difference, they are shot with a Nikkor 50mm 1.8 at f/8, 1/200 if I remember correctly, but for sure all have the same aperture, shutter and focus anyway, 2 with the OEM firmware and 2 with the patch. You can check the red house at the center for quality comparison, FYI when I zoom to that house in Lv I can clearly see the roof tiles, I have also tried to add more exposure in Premiere to check how well each file handles the dark parts at the sides and I can't see any difference in dynamic range either.

The best chance for true quality upgrade would be to change the recording to YUV 4:2:2 8-bit (Hi422P profile), even with that means the recording time would drop to 5-7 mins, which is still enough for feature film shots. And maybe find a way to change the way video is camptures in DX crop mode (the video is captured in 720p and up-scaled to 1080p).
