If your ATV is powered up and on the same wireless network as your iPod then it should show up as an AirPlay Output Device on the iPod - subject to IOS version(?). Your TV doesn't need to be on for this to work, but you will need to enable AirPlay on your ATV. Sometimes I need to restart my ATV before it is visible to other devices on the network and vice versa.
