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.

I am not running any tvOS beta software, just the general public release software...still can't find home hub...

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!
