    I think you need to enable it on aTV Remote settings first. IMHO that also involves learning the commands from the donor remote.
    PS the system is pretty clever - it is the aTV box itself, that learns the IR commands from any IR remote and then programs the Siri remote accordingly. Siri remote does not come with any pre-programmed IR-codes or device programming codes, like most others do.
    Check the aTV manual for details on how to do that.

    it only uses it to control the TV if configured.

    or if you're using LIRC, you don't have to learn the codes

    Hold on guys, I didn't see any such options before. This will take a while as I am overseas now, the current WinLIRC configuration works but need more testing

    There is/was an app for macOS, iOS, Android and Windows Mobile called CiderTV. It does exactly what you need and can even control the volume of your TV set in some cases.
