What happens when it's connected to an Apple TV, and you use Siri?

For example, you're using your HomePod to airplay from your Apple TV when watching a TV Show/Movie.

Then you say "Hey Siri, what's the weather" (or whatever).. What will the HomePod do?
- Does the playback on Apple TV pause/stop while the HomePod answers your question?
- Does it mute the audio of the Apple TV but continues playback while answering your question?
- Does it ignore your question because it is in the middle of playing back audio from your Apple TV?

  • Then you say "Hey Siri, what's the weather" (or whatever).. What will the HomePod do?
    > Yes, it responds. Most features require your iphone (with the same account) to be on the same wifi
    - Does the playback on Apple TV pause/stop while the HomePod answers your question?
    > I use Plex on Apple TV and it pauses, play and forward
    - Does it mute the audio of the Apple TV but continues playback while answering your question?
    > Yes
    - Does it ignore your question because it is in the middle of playing back audio from your Apple TV
    > No, nor does it stop playback

    Also you have to manually pair it most of the time. Sometimes the Homepod suddenly mutes... But I think this is software issues to be fixed
