The WD should have no trouble.. if it does, change the TC names for everything to SMB standard.. make sure the guest access is turned on to read at least.
AppleTV is kind of useless re TC.. without a JB (ie hacked to run a media player) it is really a streaming device not a media player.. the player is itunes or something that sends airplay to the ATV. So no, the ATV cannot do anything.. and the TC is not a media player.. it is a dumb as a board hard disk in a standard AEBS router.

SMB is windows networking standard.. It has limitations on name length.. so keep to no more than 12characters.. that is less than max.. from memory 20.. but use short names.. ie name of the Time Capsule.. TC.
SMB does not like names with spaces.. Apple by default uses spaces.. get rid of spaces.
And SMB does not like certain non-alphanumeric characters. Apostrophe is one of them. Apple wizard sets up the TC with your name.. eg Fred's Time Capsule.. all hopelessly wrong. From an SMB viewpoint.. and since Windows still rules the world.. and everything works on SMB.. including Apple.. and including Linux which both use SAMBA.. the linux version of SMB protocol. And therefore of course the WDTV Live which is Linux firmware device.
You change the name in the airport utility from a computer.
So change the wireless name.. TC name and hard disk name.. so everything follows the rules.
