I wonder, Jim, whether this is part of the general inconsistency we've 
commented on previously - where sometimes you download a file and it's 
not the usual 1280x720 norm, but you go back a few days later and the 
higher definition file downloads. I've found this to be the case when 
specifying --tvmode=best whereas --modes=hlsvhigh gets the 1280x720 
version when it's available. Is it a case of server loading?
