Hub Homekit (ATV) is on standby all the time

I’ve had a weird problem in the last few weeks – my Apple TV HomeKit hub is on standby all the time. This means that all automation is no longer working and some of my Home-Assistant devices are not working either. I have an Apple TV 4K, which I have been using as a hub for several years. The ATV is connected to the cable network. In the settings it says it is connected to the house. My iPad, iPhone and Macbook do not agree and I say it is pending. I tried to disconnect from iCloud on the Apple TV and logged in again. When I did this, I was asked to finish setting up the house by holding my iPhone close to the ATV. After that it worked! I celebrated by watching a TV series on my ATV and, after 30 minutes, all the other devices say it’s on standby again. Do you have a solution?
