Fbara is correct. You cannot print from an AppleTV. In looking at the current APIs that are inherited from the iOS platform I do not see anything that looks like it would be able to support printing. Apple does tend to lock these types of devices down. If you are interested in the types of apps that you could code and what APIs are available please see this ...

Yes, you should be able to do all the things you asked, provided you have the correct apps on the iPad.

I tested the latest version of VLC media player (2.2.2), and it seems that VLC works well on DVDs released before 2014 - but can't process the DVDs of the last year or two.
