    The primary Apple ID used with the ATV3 is linked to a laptop.

    We can view photos from the laptop on the ATV3 ("Computers" menu), as expected.

    There is a PC in the house, with photos also.

    The PC is linked to a separate Apple ID.

    Can we view photos from that PC on the ATV3 without changing the ATV3's current Apple ID?

    Nope, not possible. Why not sign into the current Apple ID you use on your PC? Seems like a simple solution to share your photos and afterwards you can sign off if the content on that PC isn't yours.

    I got my answer on other forums an hour or two ago :)

    It is possible.

    I need to change the Home Sharing address to the same one as the ATV3 and laptop :)

    Yes, you are right; every single device in your house should use the same home sharing email address and password regardless of different iTunes accounts.
