Watching 3d bluray in a 2d tv in 2d mode

Hi,

I recently upgraded to a new 2d-TV from an older 3d-TV. My earlier setup was 3d disk - 3d player - 3d tv. Its now 3d disk - 3d player - 2d tv.

I wanted to know if I could continue watching my 3d bluray disc's, using my 3d bluray player, in 2d on the new 2d tv. Upon trying to play the bluray, an error screen shows up saying 'you need a 3d bluray player connected to a 3d tv'.

So I assumed this wasn't possible, but then came across an option in the bluray player wherein we can set 3d settings as 3d -> 2d. Attaching a screenshot. But it doesnt work. Has anyone faced the same problem? And is there any way? My player is a Samsung BD E5500 ZN, about 5-6 years old.

Thanks

Unfortunately no. As far as I have exprienced, even to play 2D from a 3D disc, u need a 3D tv. I had an oppo 203 on a 2D tv in the past and I also tried to tamper with my similar settings to get this result but it didnt work. Yes I know the purpose is defeated by this logic but thats how it is. Th ebest alternative is get a drive to rip the disc on a hard disc. You can easily get 2D image from any 3D disc that way.

some blu ray discs in the pop up menu lets you choose between 2d and 3d. If the option is not available i guess it wont work

It is not possible to watch 3d movie on 2d tv i think. I am not able to watch my 3d blu rays on my sony x9000f through sony bdps 490 3d BDP. Only AVATAR bd is played coz it has a 'play in 2d' option. All other bds are not supported.
