    I seem to have an issue under tvOS 10.0.1 in that under iCloud settings I do not see any option for homekit hub. (no option to connect or disconnect).

    Under my iPad I can connect to homekit hub on my iPad and can control my lights inside or remotely.

    Any idea why I can't use my Apple TV 4 for a homekit hub?



    Thanks

    I had his problem running tvOS beta. I had to reset the Apple TV and reinstall download all apps. It was a pain and not really want to do it again.

    Turn off your iPad. If you're using two-factor authentication, it will show up on the Apple TV. I think Apple assumes that if you have Homekit enabled on your iPad, you're using it for a hub.

    Once enabled on the Apple TV, it doesn't seem to care if you access it on the iPad again.

    This worked for me! Thanks! I had two-factor on already. I signed out of iCloud on my 4th gen Apple TV and then restarted it and signed back into iCloud, and there it was. All is good now!
