I can not get a nice shot either ... I tried with a Canon EOS 450D, but it's just too slow. I use a videocamera, a Sony, and film the screen. Get the film onto PC and take snapshots of the film

Similar technique can be used for other purposes, too. I wanted screenshots from the TV so I could give my niece a memento of her appearance as a featured extra on Doc Martin. Taking photos of the TV screen was useless, so I asked my son in Brazil (who downloads English TV series from the Internet) to trawl through the episode until he found the places my BAD photos occurred, then take screenshots (Snapshots) of them from the PC file and email them to me! Result....BRILLIANT!

I use my HTC Desire mobile phone for screenshots. You have to use it without a flash. About 80% of the screenshots are bad, but few are ok. If you use a projector with Xenon light, sometimes the pics can be look like made from a a pink print.

I use my iphone with no flash and the pictures come out very well...unless there is a lot of movement and then there is blur but the colors stay true to what is on the screen for the most part.

Like Flavio said, if you have a DSLR like the Nikon D-series or Canon EOS-series, then you should be set pretty much off the bat.
It's all about finding the right setting. I use high ISO and fast exposure, that way I "freeze" the frame nicely while still getting a crisp, clear picture.
