    HomePod HomePod Mini pair works for music but not TV

    I have set up a HomePod Minis as a pair. This works wonderfully with music! Sound comes out of both speakers to create a stereo effect as you would expect. The problem starts when I watch tv. Everything is only playing out of one speaker. It's annoying! I'm using Apple TV so I assumed this...

Either way, I was thinking about purchasing a new ATV4k2, and moving the problematic ATV4K to a less used TV. But, I was curious...
