HomeKit continues to rename entries on the LG E8 OLED TV, is there a way to stop it?

HomeKit continues to rename entries on the LG E8 OLED TV, is there a way to stop it?

I’ve set up AirPlay and HomeKit on the E8 and it works fine. But every day it will rename the input to which the Apple TV 4K is connected. I have that HDMI input labeled “Apple TV,” but HomeKit is trying to rename it “Living Room A.” In the home application it is called Living Room Apple TV and both Apple TV and LG TV are in the living room. Every day, I change the input name for the HDMI port that Apple TV is connected to, but it always comes back to using the HomeKit device name for the input in the end. Is there any way to stop this other than disabling HomeKit on your TV?
