Scenes triggered by Home Hub forget to put the lights in adaptive mode. Triggering the same scene on other devices works correctly.

Cupertino, January 7, 2022

It happened several times and I don't understand. Every few weeks, one of my scenes will stop controlling my lights in Adaptive Lighting mode when it is controlled by one of my homepods. This is true if I use Hey Siri and control the scenes manually or let other automations run on the Home Hub to control one of those scenes. I just tested this, and one of my homepods commands the scene correctly, and the other doesn't. The HPM running 15.2 (current OS) is the one that fails to control correctly, while the one running 14.7 commands correctly, putting the lights in adaptive mode. Also, homepod mini 15.2 can't manually control the lights in adaptive mode, when I try, Siri says it can't find such devices in my house. This is new and I have to believe it is because of something that Apple is changing on the server. But 14.3 strings can command individual lights to be adaptive. But if I control those scenes using an iPhone or an iPad (using hey Siri or touching the scene in the home app), the adaptive lighting command is communicated. Has anyone else suffered from this? Is there a better resolution than the one I've found to do so far, which is just entering the scene and changing the color into something, saving, returning to the scene, then reapplying the adaptive light, then saving? Because this works absolutely, it simply shouldn't be necessary, especially since all my other devices clearly don't need this kind of fix.
