Only if it also has a 2D disk along with the 3D disk (some blu ray packs have both 3D and 2D disks). Otherwise not possible.

Your TV will give pop-up as format not supported.
again it depends on the model and make of the TV and source

It is simple. For playing 3D Bluray in 3D or 2D mode the BDP and TV should be 3D.

Nope, this is not like a hybrid SACD which will play CD stereo layer if you pop it into a non-SACD player. Because of the enormous amount of data used to record a 3D BD, they can't (yet) fit another layer with regular 2D on the same disc. Plus, they get to gouge us with 2 discs or a special edition combo!

As long as the disc has a 2D+3D format it will play only the 2D version in the 2D player. I have a Avatar disc with both the formats

Most of the time I get two different disc for 3D and 2D movie in same pack like Pacific Rim or only one 3D movie. But one movie I have, don't know the name, have only one disc with both 3D and 2D version of movie and need to select at the beginning...

Most of the 3D movie bluray packs come with 2D version of the movie. However you cannot play a 3D disk on a 2D TV even if you have a 3D player.
