WordpressFilter: Is there a way to use the first image found inside posts that I draw in via RSS so that they're used as the "featured image?"

I'm using FeedWordPress to aggregate some content, and trying to use Justin Padlock's "Get The Image" plugin, but nothing appears to be happening.
This may be because the images aren't hosted locally - but on the site where the images are originally being posted.
(and failing this, is there a way to have the "featured image" automatically chosen based on category).
Ideally, I'm hoping to find plugins that will handle this so I don't need to recode whenever I change themes... but, if that's what it takes I'll have at it!
