The video quality from your 1DX will be very good Ernie but using the LCD viewing screen to shoot video is terribly awkward in many situations.
I have shot short video clips with my 1DX bodies on a handful of occasions when I was in a situation where video was useful and I didn't have my XF-400 along. I have no complaints about quality from any of these bodies but I have little interest in shooting video and even less interest when using a camera that was intended primarily for stills.
My daughter is going with me to shoot a track conference championship later today and she will be using my 1DX with EF 70-200 f2.8 while I use the 1DX II and III bodies. Even compared to its later family members, the 1DX is still an incredibly good sports camera and a true pleasure to use.
Anna got some very nice shots with this combination at a soccer match she attended with me last week while she awaits governing body approval to rejoin sports after transferring to a different school for her senior year for better academic opportunities. But I hope next year she is back on the field instead of with me on the sidelines.

" I have little interest in shooting video and even less interest when using a camera that was intended primarily for stills."
Thanx, Rodger but that sentence is me. One caveat, I have littler interest in video, period. Any camera!

I updated to 1.3.2 before they took the firmware down. I'm wondering if that was the cause...
Where did you get it serviced? I believe Canon probably would have updated the firmware while they had it in house.
