Accessory control in the same room with Apple TV 4K

Cupertino, April 17, 2020

Hello everyone,

My Apple TV 4K was delivered a few days ago and I have a question that basically refers to the integration with HomeKit.

First of all, it was disappointing to see that I can't control Apple TV as part of a scene that includes video content, e.g. specifying it to open Netflix through a HomeKit scene. I have almost all of my HomeKit and Homebridge controlled settings, so it's actually a step back. But I dug it.

My problem right now is that Siri's request to turn off any accessories in the same room, while Apple TV results in Apple TV itself being turned off.

"Shut down PS4"
"Okay, Apple TV is off"

"Turn off the lights"
"Okay, Apple TV is off"

"Turn everything off in the room"
"Okay, Apple TV is off"
But everything else remains.

You have the idea.

Please anyone has any tips or remedies? I tried to change the name of Apple TV, but it was not successful.

Thank you in advance.
