I’ve noticed that if I use the Siri search function on my Apple TV that afterwards for about 5 minutes the volume fluctuates between very low and very high on its own. This happens with my soundbar, tv speakers, and airpods. This glitch doesn’t happen if I don’t use the Siri button. Has anyone else noticed this before? It makes me never want to use voice search because for about 5 minutes watching tv is very unpleasant until the sound returns to normal.

I've not seen that

have you tried rebooting the aTV?
have you tried the OS update that came out yesterday?

you could try turning siri off, rebooting, turning siri on, rebooting again and see what happens.
this might get a setting that's "stuck" back to the right place.

I have a similar issue with my 4th gen ATV. I haven’t connected it to Siri, although we use it sometimes. It doesn’t drive me crazy, but does make me consider replacing the ATV.

Dang, I wish they’d come out with a new model. If I buy a 4K, I know they come out with a new one in no time and then I’ll want that.
