Best way to transfer under $500

Its starting to get that time when the expenses of becoming a pro videographer start to really add up. What is the best way to capture and playback video without wearing out the heads on my XH A1 for under $500. I would go and get a deck, but i simply dont have the money to spend on it right now as i just picked up a letus and a gitzo. Thanks for the responses.

Buy a used HV20 for around $350. Will read 60i, 30F and 24F from the XH A1.
