2) select HomePod as audio output
3) exit the movie and put AppleTV to sleep
4) trigger Hey Siri on homePod and ask it to play music

Expected Results:
Music should be playing from HomePod. TV should remain in standby. 

Actual Results:
AppleTV turns on, and no audio is playing anywhere. 

Describe circumstances where the problem occurs or does not occur, such as software versions and/or hardware configurations.
