    My older Apple TV just got updated to 7.3. I share photos from my iMac to my AppleTV via home sharing. There used to be a Computers button on the home page but it isn't there anymore. How can I get to the photos on my iMac from my AppleTV now on this version of software?

    Thanks!

    Are you referring to tvOS 12.3? If so, my ATV has been updated to that version and I still have the Computers app available. However in order to connect to my Mac I did have to "Turn off Homesharing" in iTunes File menu on the Mac and turn it back on with my AppleID password in order for the ATV to find it. The Computers app is now able to display my photos.

    My computers app is gone. It's an older Apple TV (not sure which version) and it says the tvOS is 7.3. I'll try turning off homesharing and then back on to see if the Computers App comes back.
