Remove the old Apple TV as your home hub

Remove the old Apple TV as your home hub

Hi everyone, I just replaced an old ATV with the new 4K model. Of course, the old ATV was one of my home hubs, being connected to the HomeKit. Before disconnecting it, I did a reset (the plan is to send it to my parents to use) without doing anything to specifically remove it from my HomeKit set. I then installed the new 4K ATV and configured it in the HomeKit. In HomeKit it has a different name from the old ATV. I then had to remove the old ATV device from the HomeKit, but I’ve noticed since then that it remains a hub and obviously says it’s disconnected. For my life, I can’t find a way to eliminate it and I was wondering if anyone is lucky? Worse scenario, I will recommend the old ATV, give it the old name and then go in and remove it manually before resetting it. A little annoying and you would think that doing a complete reset would take care of this sort of thing. Anyway, thanks in advance for any ideas and thanks for listening.
