Can an IPOD be connected directly to ATV (Not IPONE/ITOUCH)

Does anyone know if an IPOD (Classic 120) can be connected directly to my ATV via the USB (I have installed the patchstick) so that I can see and control the playlists on my television?

If not can the IPOD be directly connected to my television so that I can see the playlist instead of just watching films??

Thanks in advance Derek.
