It doesn't do HDMI but it's a much more reasonable $200:http://www.hauppauge.com/site/products/data_hdpvr.html
It has component loop thru. So, you connect HD component out of the 360 to the hdpvr and then HD component out of the hdpvr to your tv/monitor. It does realtime h.264 compression which greatly relieves the stress on the host computer. The hdpvr connects to the computer via USB cable and records the h.264 compressed video to hard drive.
And before anyone asks, for the ten bazillionth time, you cannot do HDMI and component/composite/svideo/scart/vga or any other type of video at the same time. The only 2 video outs that you can get to work simultaneously, are standard def component and composite.
