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?

You should be able to. On the PC just sign into the Home Sharing using the Apple ID that you currently use on your laptop and ATV3. It will ask you to authorize its use on the PC. Go ahead and authorize it (you can use the same Apple ID on 5 different computers). You can still use the other Apple ID for everything else on the PC.
