    Hello all,

    Wondering if anyone else has had this issue. I currently have several time-based automation tasks configured in HomeKit. Everything worked great before I upgraded my iPad and iPhone to the iOS 11 public beta (*and* my Apple TVs to the public beta). None of these automation tasks actually execute now.

    I noticed that when I opened up an existing automation task and hit 'Save', it would say that it couldn't save the task (even if I didn't make any changes).

    So I went through and recreated all my automation tasks. It now lets me open and edit them, but still none of them execute as scheduled.

    Anyone else experience this problem? Anyone else have HomeKit scheduled automation tasks working with the latest iOS 11 beta *and* Apple TV beta?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, mine are working. (mostly) I had the same issue with not being able to edit any so I recreated them. I also make sure to restart the Apple TV after everything is done. Generally I have had good luck but occasionally during the beta some have just not happened but its not a full failure. The one failing most recently is one that turns lights on prior to sunset. My at sunset has been fine, the offset has had issues.

    Thanks for the tip! I rebooted all four Apple TVs (and applied the latest beta release, as a couple were behind). Now my automations work!

    Not sure if it was the reboot or the beta versions that did it......
