Is there any way to get Calibre to send the high resolution cover images to device?

I have a rooted 1st edition nook and the really nice thing about it is that it will show the cover of the book you are currently reading as a screensaver. However, I use calibre to manage and transfer my library, and when it transfers books to the device, it transfers a very small, low res image. Is there any way to get it to transfer the higher res image that I get when I download covers so that when showing the covers as screen savers they will actually fill the entire screen instead of showing a tiny image in the middle of the screen?

I noticed that covers are much lower res now than they used to be. I have used Calibre to download The Economist over the past 18 months or so and covers used to be of a fairly high resolution - I could read the text on the cover on my PRS950. Now, over the past 4 weeks, the resolution of the cover is way lower.

I have not tried other magazines. So I am not even sure this is a Calibre issue. But I wish there was a way to return to the old, higher res covers.

The economist stopped publishing high res covers on their website.
