Cheapest effective way to capture game screenshots/video?

I know I can point a camcorder at the TV, but that stinks. What's a very cheap capture method to get HD screenshots or video, not something expensive like the Twitch gamer crowd uses, any ideas or experience with this?

Re: Cheapest effective way to capture game screenshots/video

Screenshots can be captured via the developer page. If you're getting tearing in the screenshot, break into the debugger before taking it, so the screen doesn't refresh mid-screenshot. For video, there are no "cheap" options that I'm aware of. I've used a Slingbox in the past. Now I use an Elgato HD Game Capture.
