Will the new Apple TV not connect to the phone during HomeKit setup? Bluetooth problem?

Hi all! I added the new Apple TV to my setup last night, but I can’t connect it to my phone via Bluetooth for the HomeKit setup. It simply never appears in the list of connectable devices on my iPhone 12. It debugged the base; Bluetooth and WiFi on and off, restarted both devices several times. Unfortunately, the wording I have problems with is quite generic and therefore difficult for Google. I already have a full setup (another Apple TV, a few HomePods, and a lot of devices), so I don’t think that’s causing me any problems. Did anyone manage to solve this?
