[How to disable Apple TV as Hub](https://preview.redd.it/znc1d5n3o4a61.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=a14b380d0aa8a50df02089351b665f78c4d30b37) # After 2020, even my HomeKit needs a fresh start! I have an extended HomeKit setup with many Apple TVs, HomePods and now the new HomePod minis. These devices are seen as more than a dozen “hubs” in the HomeKit. And now, when I restart my house, I wonder … # Is one HomeKit hub better than the other? ** How about the new Minis with Thread? ** 1. Is there any newer technology in the HomePod Mini that makes it better as a hub? 2. The topic has not yet been widely implemented, but how can I use this technology now? # With so many hubs, should I disable all but a few? ** Would this help solve connectivity issues? ** I’ve started having a lot of connectivity issues in the last 3-4 months. The only changes in my system were the addition of 3 HomePod Minis AND also my mesh router (Eero) updated its software. I tried to allocate static ip to hubs, etc., hoping it would fix it. Unlucky. # My last solution is to start over; to press the reset button. ** And that’s exactly what I did a few moments ago. And tbh, it felt great! ** I wish you luck in reconstruction. And thanks for any advice you may have on my above questions. EDIT: I didn’t realize it was such a common problem. We hope a solution is shared below. EDIT 2: Several below report success with multiple HomeKit hubs. These users suggest network adjustments.
