Siri doesn't always work on Apple TV - just me?

    Occasionally – well, I say 'occasionally' but it's actually quite frequently – I'll ask a command to the Siri remote and Siri will open on screen, even registering my voice waveform, but won't show text of what I've asked nor will it respond. It will just display "What can I help you with?" It won't matter how many times I ask or how loud, it just won't work.

    If I wait a few moments then try Siri again, sometimes it will start working. Also if I switch it off then on again in settings it works, but if it's been left a day since using it it almost never works first time. Like it needs time to switch on or something. I'm just curious if anyone else has been experiencing this?

    I know this might sound stupid, but are you holding down the Siri button when making commands?

    I have this happen once in a while. A reboot fixes it.
