Recording video demo of channel UI

We're doing some custom User Interface work and need to record the Roku video output for demo purposes. Understandably Roku make it difficult to record the HDMI output to prevent content piracy, but wondered if any other developers know a way to record very short video demos of someone using a channel?

OK thanks. I was hoping for a solution that didn't require additional hardware but can see now it is unlikely I'll be able to avoid that.

Re: Recording video demo of channel UI

I use an AGPtEK HDMI USB 3 capture box, works fine. One thing to keep in mind - on this box the only full screen output is raw, which is what i want anyway, but the files are big - about 14gb per minute for 1080p 60 fr.  My SSD drive is the only thing fast enough to do it, spinners can't.
