I have a BG808s and i normaly run a HTPC, however when my motherboard/psu/hd died and i was looking at warenty returns i looked for a cheap back-up player and ended up with a Momitsu 808N which i use a small DVI->VGA adaptor and then cable to the projector, you can get VGA->5BNC cables or VGA->VGA cables and use a VGA->Barco Port3 adaptor, or you may have a cable from the quad scan.
The Momitsu is one of the few scaling dvd players that allows an analogue output and hence can be used with a CRT projector with ease. I think the Snazio 1350 also can. Both can be picked up round the £80-120 in the UK secondhand.
I've actualy found the Momitsu so easy to use (save the naff remote) that i'm still not fully using my HTPC yet, even though i built it 6months ago...Its a little better, but for day to day watching, the momitsu is really very good.
DVI into the barco is posible and the HDfury has just been brought out which is probably your best bet (certainly cheapest) if you want to use HD DVI/HDMI sources....I think this is the best current comercial solution....Check out Curts website which has a fair deal for us in the UK on it.
