What Dave’s code does – I think, it’s not really explained – is use the Flickr API to grab the largest-available resolution image for anything which crops up in the RSS feed. This means it’s more likely to look pretty good on an HDTV. Given that the resolution of 1080p is 1920×1080 – and most “HD ready” TV’s aren’t 1080p anyway – I don’t think that’s a big deal.
