DVD HDMI to VGA Adapter for going to VGA only Projector.

Is there a HDMI to VGA adapter?  We are a church and we used to run all svideo to the video projectors.  This wasn't a great solution but it worked for laptops that have svideo out and dvd players.  

We have tried playing dvd video clips through the laptop, but it's really not ideal and our media program (Media Shout) spins down the dvd and then there's a delay when the slide for the video comes up because it has to spin up the dvd.  

We are now running VGA (which I've wanted to do for years), but this excludes most dvd players on the market.  

My thought was that I could use a dvd player with hdmi out, and then with an adapter take it to VGA (if possible).  My video card came with a VGA to HDMI adapter.  I just need an adapter that goes the other way around.  HDMI to VGA.  Any other suggestions would be appreciated too.

Thanks

Not really possible without a digital-to-analog converter.  HDMI is digital, and VGA is analog, so a simple adapter won't work.  The converter boxes are not cheap: http://www.svideo.com/ext-dvi-2-vga.html

Since a lot of DVD players are still Component, would a component out to VGA adapter work?

Just a thought -- I did this via a converter from a mac to a VGA projector. It worked but the image kept shifting from light to dark frequently and drove me absolutely insane. I don't have solutions, though the adapter mentioned above would probably work.
