    I don't believe it's possible to route the Apple TV to a television it's not directly connected to.

    AppleTV needs to be connected via HDMI. Its connection to the internet can be wireless but its connection to your television cannot be.

    I'm confused as to why you would want to route your AppleTV through your DVD player in the first place. There's really no value in doing that, that I can think of.

    If it's a DVD with recording ability, it would have inputs... or, some external devices are capable of acting as a hub with switchable inputs...

    Always a possibility. We have a sound bar that acts as an HDMI hub. What's interesting here is that OP is trying to do it wirelessly based on advice from his cable provider (LOL).
