Can using Airplay disable hubs in Homekit?

Can using Airplay disable hubs in Homekit?

This may just be a coincidence, but in the last week I had problems with both Apple TV and homepod mini hubs that are closing for some reason. Yesterday not only was the Apple TV hub turned off, but I had to log in and log out of Icloud because I forgot I had an Apple TV. After that, it worked fine for a few hours, then the hub disconnected. The rest is still fine and says it is still connected to homekit, but homekit still says it is disconnected. Homepod mini also shows that the hub is disconnected, but normally restarting will fix this for a while anyway. Last week I created a music system that can be streamed on streaming devices and at about the same time I started having these issues. But it could be a coincidence, so I wonder if anyone else noticed this. For a test … as soon as I can make the hub work on the Apple TV again, I’ll turn off the airplay on it, but leave it open on the mini and see what happens.
